Tuesday was our longest drive so far. Leaving Sonora we drove North and into the the Texas Panhandle, our first view of Tornado Alley proper.

The area is flat, towns are few and far between and skies are big.
Dust Devils can often be seen dancing in the distance across the hot and vast wide open spaces.

Todays weather was hot and clear. Although some convection existed towards the south, the cap held and skies quickly cleared on the drive north to Amarillo.

The main attraction in Amarillo was the Big Texan. Some of the best steaks around and home to the famous 72oz challenge, mind you no one in our group was brave enough to try it!

Dave did go for the Man vs Food Challenge and Man Won (just).

A texan limo trip back to the hotel, complete with Bull Horns. At 12mpg I don't think I'll be getting one!

With weather not performing well, the next few days look like positioning for the predicted storms on Friday/Saturday.
Originally Oklahoma on Wednesday, however a last minute change meant we're off to Colorado first then moving to Kansas ready for the final show before the journey back.

Hope you're all enjoying the live streaming.

Hopefully another good convective day before we head back.
