chase log:

this was a good set-up for supercells and so-so for tornadoes in northcentral kansas.. the big question was whether or not initiation would occur; the models insisted that it would despite a lack of synoptic support.  i hung out for several hours in the concordia area, where moisture was deeper...and almost gave up for home twice before wandering westward toward some sustained cu.  to my delight, a beautiful supercell took shape right before my eyes.  it became quickly undercut, but with structure like this i couldn't quite complain.  video is incredible.  i am rarely this persistent, and it paid off.
