Storm Chase 2006 (Storm chase images and reports)

May 23 - May 31

The 2006 storm chase season was the worst in almost 20 years. Tornadoes were absent across the Plains during the usual chase season. I delayed my chase expedition by several days and returned early. With very marginal conditions, I had to travel far for even the chance of severe storms. It was looking for "scraps." I still managed to chase some supercells but no tornadoes.
