I was wondering this the other day while watching all of the speakers give lectures/discussions from ChaserCon earlier this year. It seemed that the overall impression and opinion of him and his teams aren't the greatest. Just curious if I was reading into that correctly? And what the general consensus is of him and his operations.

I was asking because I met him earlier this year in North Platte, NE and he seemed like a really cool guy. Down to earth, took time to stand and talk... [Read More]

"Into the Storm" will once again breath in a new era of young, reckless, idiotic chasers much like that when Storm Chasers was Discovery's biggest show? I wasn't chasing in the mid 90s but was that the case when Twister came out? Either way I think we will once again see new people in the chase scene whose only push to go out and chase was this new movie. Of course, we all know there's not going to be much realism to this movie. We all know that there's no way there's that many 747s at any... [Read More]

Just a quick post from the road, more images to follow afterI get home. I targeted the Lexington KY area, hoping for a second round of supercells along the Ohio river by late afternoon. Patience paid off, as cells finally fired to the north and tracked east-southeast. I witnessed the best structure of any storm I'd ever seen in this region, counting the 16 years I lived and chased in WV. The RFD on this storm was just pushing too hard and undercutting attempts at tornadogenesis, but the... [Read More]

The satellite we observed orbiting and being pulled into the developing Wakefield EF4 on June 16 appeared to be moving at an incredible speed.

At 11:40


How fast though? I decided to try and measure its speed. The (preliminary?) damage survey map posted by OAX does not include this portion of the... [Read More]

Every year while on vacation near South Haven, Michigan, I hope for the chance to document some storms rolling in over Lake Michigan at night. This year I was most fortunate with a cold front approaching from Wisconsin and a nearly horizontal line of storms dropping from North to South. My location was inside a slight risk area but I only observed sub-severe level winds with these storms.
