25 March 2015 / First at bat, local storms

This was an outing made favorable by its proximity.   I don’t think I would have committed to similar conditions a few hours away.  The main show was delayed a little bit from what I was expecting, but by late afternoon, storms rapidly developed and became severe along a strong southward pushing cold front.  I spent a good deal of time on Minco Hill which is a couple of miles south of Minco and provides great 360  degree viewing.  I generally stayed south and east of these very large hail producing storms that were being undercut by a combination of front and outflow.  I grabbed some video for time lapse at a couple of locations and got the DSLR out a couple of times.  It was nice to get out the door for the first time this season, and not put a lot of effort into it.
