May 25th - another bust!

After getting woken up at around 5am by a thunderstorm in Odessa (so at least we had a storm today!) we headed to Fort Stockton, leaving the hotel around midday, and getting there in time for lunch. We then spent the next 5 1/2 hours in a futile wait for storms to form off a dry line to our west. It was a day to trust the HRRR model's depiction of a supercell moving across SE New Mexico, and those who gambled on it got a nice storm. We decided to hang tight to no avail. Headed back to Odessa for tonight, staying at the Best Western again. Saw a nice sunset, with the storm to the north. Ate dinner at Chilli's.

There was a great chaser convergence at Fort Stockton. Amongst others we saw Dave Lewison, Scott McPartland, Reed Timmer and the Dominator 4, Nathan Edwards, Cammie and Tim, Bill Hark, Lou Rou, Claire Hudson, Jolyane Limoges, Mark Robinson, to name a few.
