This day turned out to be rather special with a long chase on a supercell in western Texas for about 3 hours before we ran low on gas  in a town that had no open gas stations at the time.  We followed the low precipitation supercell that lacked sufficient surface winds to get a tornado to the ground(#1-8).  Later another storm showed explosive development(#9).
