And as he said in an email to Yorkton This Week, “Yowie, wowie, what a view!”

“The models for the day were showing the most potential was South of Regina (Weyburn to Estevan),” he explained. “I was seeing decent potential a little later between Fort Qu'Appelle and Yorkton.

I am glad I went with my gut this time and stayed put because WOW! did it pay off.

“What a stunning storm!

“Shortly after the beautiful structure, I was in the rotation recording over 105-kilometre winds.

“Fantastic short chase day.”
