I took 11 days off to chase storms this May. After nearly a week with no storms, I got antsy and headed north to South Dakota, where it looked like storms would form in a couple days. I spent a day exploring the Badlands area. Storms developed farther to the south the next few days; so I ended up driving through Nebraska and on through Kansas Oklahoma and north Texas before returning to Colorado. 5 days, 2,400 miles, and three tornadoes along with numerous powerful storms--quite a trip!
