You may be wondering why we were documenting a small cactus planted in the bottom of a soda bottle.

Well, we found this little guy up in ND, while waiting for the storms to catch up to us.

We were bored.

We found this large grasshopper while trying to stay out ahead of the shelf cloud. Later we found out we happened to be following the Enchanted Highway.

We stayed at a hotel in Trinidad, CO with a beautiful view from the backside.

It was not a great chase day and the crew needed a day off to work on some other stuff.

Went out to do some car shots with the crew.

And when we came back to the hotel... a nice little cell was forming. Didn't capture the brief needle funnel on camera though...
