Season's End

Soon after sunset, we reached the eastern dropoff toward Minnesota from the Coteau des Prairies, and abandoned pursuit of a disorganizing supercell that formerly was quite spectacular. It would be the final storm intercept of the 2012 Great Plains vacation for us, and fittingly, ended with a lovely and textured sky composed of both silhouetting scud and high clouds reflecting the twilight colors of a source receding farther below the horizon. So it was--yet another springtime storm season painted for us a kaleidoscopic good-bye.
