South Georgia Storm Chasing Dew Style

First things first... a HUGE thank you to the members of the Southern Weather Brigade, who together put me in place to intercept a tornado warned supercell. Alabama Mike, Storm Chasing Mikey, Mr. Rickster, General BS (Jay), and Meso Mike. Each one of them contributed to an awesome chase day for me! No, I didn't get hail... though I heard reports of GOLF BALL SIZED hail not far from my initial location when I ran out of time with bf. Grr. I did, however, get a wonderful opportunity to see a wall cloud pass over the interstate on the only tornado warned cell in Georgia today (y'all correct me if I'm wrong about that.) WAHOO! Without further a-dew... here are some of my favorite shots. My full chase account include some typical dew-style elements to the story will be available hopefully tonight on my personal blog located at www.dewdropweather.com (shameless, I know...) That was my perfect little tornado-less supercell...... and that was when it had passed over the interstate in Lake Park, GA... just after my call to report it to the National Weather Service.
It was a great chase! Just got word that Meso Mike and Rick are both out chasing some lightning up to my north.~Dew

Great job Dew. Love the second wall cloud picture. Quite the ominous scene. I guess you were the Meso magnet for the day huh.

Thanks. Couldn't have done it without yours and the help of the others. It was quite ominous. I guess I was a meso magnet after all... :O)
