Day 4 - Chase 2017

Day 4 (5/20/17): San Angelo, Texas to Del Rio, Texas (287 miles; 1965 total for trip)

Our crew got up early today for our 8:30am briefing in San Angelo, Texas. We left our hotel at 9:45am, and headed to our target city of Uvalde, Texas. Three hours later we arrived, but after lunch came to the consensus that nothing was looking to promising. We did drive north of Uvalde to view a storm that had a good reflectivity core on radar. We watched that storm and other clouds trying to get organized for about an hour until deciding to leave for Del Rio, Texas, our stopping point for the night, at 3:30pm. Along the way, we took a quick pit stop at a historical marker, and took in some of the neat nature that southwestern Texas has to offer. We are currently in Del Rio (only a couple miles from the Mexican border) and had some delicious Mexican cuisine for dinner.

Who wore it better; VP and his cacti shirt or nature?
