August 12th, 2010: Benson, MN

This was the last hurrah of the 2010 season. With the bang than MN had over the summer, it ended very quickly and there was no September season. I headed out from work at 4 PM as this storm was already underway. It took a couple hours to get there and I arrived around 6. By that point, things were winding down. I ran into my old chase partner David Drufke who was able to get there a bit earlier. Apparently the storm looked pretty good at one point, but it never got over the hump. Adios, 2010!
