This was to be the first severe weather outbreak of 2000, and even though it didn't quite live up to expectations, it was still a fun chase day. As we got in position to see the Bebee storm, we noticed the anvil beginning to backshear and seeing this helped get our hopes up.1 From here, we got in better position and saw a sunlit house with a well formed shelf cloud above it and an eerie sky behind it.2 I took another picture of the same shelf cloud located over the road.3 After getting in better position, we saw three brief lowerings, none of which stuck around long enough to get any decent pictures of. Of these three, I did manage to get a picture of one of them after it had fallen apart somewhat.4 At one time, the lowering briefly took on a nice pedestal shape. The storm eventually split and began to die. After pushing eastward and seeing a strong cap in place, we decided to call it a day at 2:15 p.m.
