I don’t know if I’ll ever check “chase tornadoes” off the NewsCut bucket list. I’m more of the huddle-in-the-basement sort of person.
But for the experienced storm chasers, Monday offered the opportunity for prime viewing of a still relatively rare weather event in these parts, in this case, Litchfield and Watkins in west-central Minnesota.
For the record, I probably wouldn’t turn down an invitation to accompany experienced storm chasers next time.
