    When people asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would say storm chaser. Clearly, I didn't pursue this professionally, but storms have always excited my very being. Yesterday, (5-8-17) Colorado weather was shaping up to be buzzing with activity. For the first time, I gathered up the courage and set out solo in my truck for the Palmer Divide. Here are mammatus clouds seen near Deer Trail, Colorado. I think storm chasing is in my blood being born in Nebraska. Epic day!
