I was heading home on this day, knowing that I would potentially cross the path of some storms. Well, the storms fired and I planned my route for the closest intercept at the best place possible. There were no tornado warnings, just a few severe warnings. Thus, I found the "tail-end Charlie" on I-80 3o miles west of Des Moines and watched as it passed by. Nothing too exciting, a brief downpour and some neat scenery.
