Since leaving Boulder, we have spent 2 nights in Kansas, 2 nights in Oklahoma and 13 hours in our vehicles . Cup holders were installed, fried okra was consumed, and ping pong tournaments were taken quite seriously.
While reuniting with the marvelous mallow was indeed rewarding, the real highlight of today was converging with the rest of the Vortex2 armada. What was once a party of 29, has now become a party of 100+ (I tried to count everyone as they walked into the hotel, but my abacus gave me a memory allocation error--someone please laugh. Anyone...).
No severe weather is forecast for tomorrow, so work on instruments, meetings about safety, meetings about strategy, and meetings about meetings will be tomorrow's course of action. We actually have a fair amount of work, that the lack of severe weather is not troublesome...yet.
