As a Colorado chaser for a majority of my career, I have seen my share of landspouts. But for years and years, myself along with our wonderful team of ragtag Colorado-based chasers have heard constant whining about this baby brother tornado from Plains/Midwest chasers. Many droning on a great length denouncing this ground-based, non-mesocyclonic spinny cloud thingie as a cheap wannabe tornado, stat-padder, doesn't count as a real tornado, yaddi yaddi yaddi. Well, after watching social media explode after yesterday's spout-fest in Colorado, even hearing it uttered in the same breath as freakin' Pilger (seriously people) and Wray (closer, but ehhhh). On behalf of my Colorado chasing buddies, I hereby pull my veteran card and revoke anyone's right to gripe about puny landspouts anymore. As of today, a few days before the start of June, that landspout fest so many witnessed yesterday is THE tornado day of 2018. That's right, you all drooled and lost your minds over LANDSPOUTS. Those same whimpy tornadoes you for years and years bashed as no good excuses for severe weather. The cheerleaders dump you jocks and sent you to the curb, and your desperation made you crawl to Colorado to go chase landspouts. This post, obviously meant with jest in extreme humor, is a testament to how 2018 is... not how bad of a season it has been, but how humbling a season it's been. These years really show who has a passion for the art of chasing, the love of severe weather... lots of complainers roaming around out there, and it was nice to see so many people so damned excited over a bunch of landspouts. We have been spoiled with CAMs and better modeling to where we think we can just go out and see tornadoes any time we want. It don't work that way. Be humble and rediscover your passion... seriously, if you are getting so upset over how this season has treated you amidst the amazing sights that have been beholded this season, perhaps it's time you rethink your reasoning for being out here. Never in the history of this art have I heard so many people complain day after day. It's sad, because there is so much about this amazing craft to stay this upset for this long.
