Sorry guys-we forgot to post Day 2 and Day 5 blog entries while we were out on the road. Here's Day 5:After driving to Denver last night, we decided to head eastward and spend our last day checking out weather behind the storm in the Plains. We began our drive at 4 am and drove about 3 hrs to reach Kansas. After catching an amazing sunrise, we experienced a gorgeous blue sky and frigid cold temperatures. It was the perfect ending to our chase. Jess & Tim

As things were getting underway, a pickup slide off the road into a ditch in front of the 7 2 11 convenience store. A few of the crew almost face planted too. Not good conditions for driving. Our precision driver, Linda killed it though with the all wheel co...
