What Is The Best Structure Out Of These!

Recommended Posts

Seeing as we are only just over 3 weeks away now, some Storm Porn and a little help from you chasers and followers to see what you think is the best Storm out of these 20 Supercells from the  2012-2014 Seasons.

 

We really have seen some of Planet Earths Best Supercells over the past 3 years, I still have Seasons 2005-2011 which Include some Stunners as 2010 was known as the Structure Year but they will have to be for another day!

 

I will give 5 Points for your 1st Option, 3 Points for your 2nd Option and 1 Point for your 3rd Option. Then we can crown the Ultimate Supercell as well as getting you ready to drool over Storms like these which we might be witnessing in a few weeks time!

Ah so hard to choose!!! :help: 

 

 

Number 8 - Broken bow, Nebraska ( trying to disregard the bolt as that would look awesome in any storm ! lol )

 

Number 2 - Coleridge Nebraska 

 

Number 7 - Henrietta Texas

 

Runner up no 13, having been there and having my shot of that up on my wall i see it everday. Probably would've been my 3rd choice otherwise :D

Number 8 Broken Bow, Nebraska, the High Plains rarely deliver poor structures and to capture the lightning spouting from the upper layers is pure magic.

 

Number 11 Ballinger, Texas. Not much beats a low precipitation supercell.

 

Number 17 Campo, Colorado. A beautiful looking 'stove-pipe' tornado.

Can't get away from it, Climax is my #1 - she was a beaut and I have about 5000 pictures from that afternoon!

#2 Ballinger - first supercell I ever saw, so has a special place!

#3 Scotsbluff - one mothership lining up behind another, a total pancake fest! - was also the final chase day so was good to go out with a bang!

Thanks so much for the responses so far guys, will keep this open until the weekend of the 2/3rd May before crowning a champion.

 

And yh that Ballinger Supercell does look the scariest of the bunch, the hail hurt out of that as well if I remember rightly!

Weren't we huddled under a garage canopy for that one?  That turned out to be not much help as the hail arrived horizontally.

There were some big stones that fell just as we had stopped to take pictures and then we had to get back in the car, I remember one whizzing down like a small meteorite and someone got hit on the leg?. And yep, then we hid under a garage canopy - I've got some video of Tyler, Stuart and I outside the car being silly and putting hailstones down each other's backs.

Hail is sharp edged people. Don't do it.

Aha, I remember it now.  I filmed the garage part in full hd, and forgot to turn the mic on.
