It was Saturday evening, June 13, 1998. I was having dinner with some of the top storm chasers in the country at the Wagon Wheel Tavern in historic Marysville, Kansas. Fellow chasers Carson Eads, Tim Marshall, Alan Moller, Gene Rhoden and I sat down to a late meal after chasing a fast-moving, high-precipitation supercell along the Kansas-Nebraska border for several hours.
Waited near Nash for a couple hours watching towers go up and down. Best convergence could be seen to the NW. Drove N. to Anthony, KS as two towers had become small and organized storms.
I awoke at about 3:00AM on the morning of July 21, 1996 at my home in Arlington, Texas. I had been watching the persistent northwesterly flow that had set up over the Central Plains for days. I had interviews scheduled the next day, on the 22nd, in Colorado for my newest documentary.
I got up early on the morning of May 5, 1993 to prepare for a possible chase. After analyzing data, it appeared that the Texas and Oklahoma Panhandles would be the best region for supercell thunderstorms and tornadoes later in the day.
