I figured you'd be on this one! I saw this one start from my house...but it was moving fast and I figured I'd never catch up. :)) Congrats, Hon! Great job.

jodimair July 28, 2015
Thank you! I actually had to drive 800+ miles overnight to get back home for this... I was west of Wichita the day before, where I saw another tornado (nowhere near as photogenic as this!) I have a few other photos of this one in my gallery, including one where it first touched down near Ashton! What an incredible day for northern Illinois!

very jealous, I just missed the manitoba tornado but would have been a 10 hour drive but I was away working :( not many of these in alberta but at least there are very cool shelf clouds and supercells. I have a few in my gallery if you would like to check them out
