Skinny, Tilted Cb Updraft Tower

Some form of this resilient convective plume had been around for many hours, though it crawled only a few tens of miles in its entire lifespan. It began in mid-afternoon as the Cheyenne Wells Antisupercell and outlived a line of "landspout" producing storms to its south. Its rear-flank core treated us to a nice double rainbow north of Kit Carson, before we found a motel and restaurant in town, ate a leisurely dinner, checked in, unloaded luggage, looked at some forecast data for the next day's potential, then headed E to photograph the storm's last gasps around sunset.
