The column of dust in the center of this photo is a gustnado that my brother recorded during our first “family chasecation” in 2002. We were a bit north of Liberal KS in the southwestern quadrant of the state. The following is my original terse writeup of what we saw that day, May 15th:

“Stopped north of Liberal off Rtes 83/160 to view approaching cold front. Saw several gustnadoes form, one north of us ~2 miles and several south of us ~0.5 miles.

May there be other family chases out on the Great Plains!
