May 23rd, 2008: Ness City, KS

We watched storm after storm go up today. After being frustrated with limited road options that went far out of the way, we made the mistake of trying to take a dirt road as a shortcut. It was a slow, slick ride up to I-70 and Quinter, where we arrived too late. We washed the mud off the van, got some gas, and then hopped back south on a paved road towards Ness City. If we would have stuck around Quinter, we would have seen a tornado or two! There was a huge convergence in Ness City with a large, dark, scary storm approaching. I think we saw a quick tornado coming north out of the city. Due to the dark conditions I don't have pictures on this page, but this mainly time lapsed video is worth checking out.
