2002 was notable
because it was the year I saw my first tornado. It was also the first year I was out chasing when I really had an understanding of what I
was doing! The tornado we saw near Turpin, OK was a landspout that got
pushed out by the RFD wind of a storm we'd been chasing, giving it sort
of an elephant trunk look. It was a nice prize since because we started
Lamar, Colorado we had been late to the storm and missed an earlier
tornado near Sublette, KS.
