Georgia Meets south Florida... and south Florida shows off!!!

Lots of excitement on my trip to Miami with bf... First off, we saw the remnants of a water spout gone tornado (actually listed as one of the 4 tornado reports on Friday, June 13th!!! A HUGE thank you to Chris Collura who let me know that the cone funnel I was telling him about was actually a tornado just moments before!!! That rocks!!!) Anyways, it started out with some nice convection while we were exploring the National Hurricane Center (had to go there)... ...and later turned into... Not such an "unlucky day" for me. :O) I swear, bf is a magnet for cool weather stuff. Great chase partner, huh? It was so out of the blue though... we came around a turn and there it was... a beautiful cone funnel, which quickly dissipated into what you see above. For the full story, check out my blog at dewdropweather.com. Anyways, Here is the storm report map showing a tornado report on Miami Beach, you know the one that we saw!!!... and here is the local storm report. :O)

So totally awesome! My 80's lingo is really coming through here, but I don't know what else to say. And you have a tornado magnet storm chaser in the making that will put the DEWv*%d to shame. :o)
