Summary

I had plans at Rocky Mountain National Park this day so didn't chase. Leaving the park through Longmont, CO I saw a nice cinnamon roll updraft on a storm just north of town but it wasn't even severe warned at the time so I passed it by as I needed to get home. I noted a wall cloud with significant rotation becoming well-defined in my rear view mirror and by the time I could turn the car around a funnel was dropping. I observed the tornado at a distance but it was an unexpected consolation for having to miss the multiple photogenic tornadoes from another storm near Simla, CO.
