End of Season, TX.





A long, long time ago there was a young graduate student. He participated for several years in DOW field projects prior to Vortex2. One day a DOW broke down and Josh radioed, "We have reached end of season." Navigating the other DOW, unnamed graduate student (we all know who he is!!), looked at his map and asked "Where is End of Season?" At the time, the DOWs were in South Dakota. Vortex2 has reached End of Season, TX.

In short, the people who make up Vortex2 are fabulous. They are people you enjoy working with; they are old friends; they are new friends (I have never been quite sure on semi-colon usage!). As we return back to our "normal" lives, I would like to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of the scientists, engineers, technicians, students, volunteers, hotel coordinator, photographers, and the public. It has been a great run and I wish everyone the best.

Here is to End of Season, TX!

  3. It's funny how certain important details are left out of the end of season story, like how the "navigator" of the other Dow was actually driving the truck and operating the radar that day, and how the damage to dow3 was described over the radio as being critical and how all vehicles behind dow3 should get out of the way asap. Just sayin... ;)

  6. What a pity that the blog ends now... ;-)
    Was very interesting to follow, especially for the good sense of humour, but also for the side information on the project. However, you all deserve going home now after touring so many weeks.

    And then process the data! Hope to see and hear many of you at the next ECSS again, presenting some fascinating results!

  7. Bummer for us, but glad y'll get to go home. Don't wreck on the way. Great to read the blog, laugh and learn. Also that the crew seems to be safe.

    Good luck with the data.

  13. Dear Karen!
    You are a beautiful pretty woman. But you are taking part in a stupid enterprise. Your super ambitioned chief knows that Vortex2 is useless (and of course dangerous) experiment there is no need now. Because mystery of tornado is disclosed in Russian Federation about 4 years ago. And this discovery shows that in a way of vortex2 you will NEVER find answers on a questions you all formulate. Because experiment is based on a fault ideas! Can you say it is not truth and you are found some piece of success this summer? You can't. And it is ever forever. How it is sad.

  30. I believe what you wrote was actually very logical.

    However, what about this? what if you were to write a awesome post
    title? I am not saying your information isn't solid, however suppose you added a post title to possibly get people's attention?
    I mean "End of Season, TX." is a little vanilla. You
    ought to glance at Yahoo's front page and see how they create article headlines to get viewers interested. You might add a related video or a related picture or two to get people excited about what you've got to say.

    Just my opinion, it would bring your posts a little bit more interesting.

    than the decorations you would find at another venue,

    include old oil lanterns, Christmas lights arranged creatively, or

I do storm chase, but tend to do it alone since my storm chasing goals are a bit more different than you all with Vortex 2 and Dr Wurman and also different them Reed Timmer. I am sort of in-between my private research of tornado and severe thunderstorm research. Anyways, I love this blog site and keep up the good work. Hmmmm, maybe a Vortex 3 project may eventually be reality.
