Day 1 – Bonus storm

Well, I was not too smart before going on this trip. I was up until 2 a.m. the night before, having drinks with a couple of friends. At 5 a.m. I went to Arlanda airport (Stockholm). Wise from this experience, the first thing I did when arriving was of course to hang out with a couple of the other travelers on their hotel room, drinking beer.

With jet lag added to this and it may be easy to understand that I was a bit of a wreck on our first chase day. I believe I had some 8-9 slumbers in the car during the day.

During that day we drove over four different states and ended up under a promising storm in Iowa. The weather never got as angry as we hoped for but it was pretty and, according to my Swedish standards, quite a cool storm.

Today (it”s Day #2, when I write this) things looked quite promising but the winds turned, as well as us. Let”s see where the day will take us, at least now I have had my sleep!

This could easily be a Photoshop! :)
This could easily be a tornado…in Photoshop! 🙂
