This storm chase I did together with Bernard Hulshof, Herman Harperink and Floris Bijlsma. Chase route: Amarillo TX - Lubbock - Sweetwater - Austin - Fredericksburg - Taylor - Amarillo. The landscape was frustrating during this chase, with many hills and trees blocking the view to the storm. The anvil crawler lightning together with the mammatus at the back end of the storm was a fantastic view, just after the sunset had colored that mammatus bright orange red.
