2003 Chase Home
My chase partners (Melanie Metz,
Peggy Willenberg, Rob Koch, and Cy
Dodson) and myself  extend our
sympathies to all who suffered
personal loss this day and commend
the NWS for an outstanding public
service job.  Dealing with tors is  
stressful enough.  Having a cyclic
supercell in  a major metro area
definately was the worse case scenario.
More sheared off trees and roofs.
