It's a cracker isn't it.

Tyler..I prefer to go later than the May 9 Tour I went on because of these photogenic  and slower moving storms you get on the High Plains. I got some great shots in 2008 when the Tour started June 4. out of Denver. At least next year the Tour starts May 16 so that's better.

Watched it on a live stream as well-a truly amazing sight and well worth missing out on some sleep.
