After a stay in Burlington, Colorado, we left late morning only to find a dead battery in the SUV. [img]http://f.nwstatic.co.uk/forum//public/style_emoticons/default/help.gif[/img]
This was quickly sorted with the help of the local police and we were soon on our way towards
Denver and the [url="http://www.theweatherprediction.com/weatherpapers/013/"]Denver Cyclone Convergence Zone (DCVZ)[/url], an area renowned for spawning many of the tornadoes in eastern Colorado.

After a stop in Limon, we waitied for Initiation of the DCVZ and headed west. Things happened very
quickly and a tornado was reported at Denver Airport ahead of us which unfortunately we missed.

We headed SE on I-70 towards Kit Casrson for the afternoon and were saw a couple of well formed
funnels, one of which formed just north of the road and started to cross the road ahead of us
before retracting back into the wall cloud, an amazing sight to see.
