Hi ya’ll! I’m Anthony. I’ve been chasing storms for about 30 years as a hobby but began to learn the fundamentals of using skew-t charts and mesoanalysis data the past couple of years. I have so much to learn but have enjoyed my journey so far.
Youre lucky to live in such an active area.Hey everyone! My name is Chris Garrison, I live in Birmingham, AL. I am a trained spotter, and have loved the weather my entire life. My eyes are always on the sky. I am here to learn as much as possible, and give input where I can! Glad to be a part of the community.
I have lived here my whole life. That is a day I will never forget. So many people were affected. We were in the direct path of that particular storm, but it lifted a few miles before us.Were you there April 27th 2011 when The Tuscaloosa/Birmingham tornado touched down?
Thank you! Maybe one day you will get to lay your eyes on such a monster! I will youtube that tornado sometimes just to relive that day if you may. Do you guys get severe weather at all?As scary as I'm sure it was, That's always gonna be a part of history and you got to be there. I've never seen a tornado quite like that one, and it's one of my favorite ones to read and watch videos on. The external vortices tentacles were hauntingly beautiful on that monster! Glad you and your family were safe!
Now that you mention it, I remember reading about the memorial day tornados. Just move on down to Bama and you will get plenty of action lol!Im in North East Ohio. right on P.A line and dont get me wrong Ohio averages about 18 or 19 tornados a year. Im sure everyone heard of the Xenia F5, Well EF5 back then.. We do but not nearly as much as I'd like to see. Although we have had an active year. The memorial day F4 tornados that hit Dayton the night of May 28th this year was probably the biggest in a while. I would love to live somewhere alot more active! We get alot of storms, but not as likely to get a tornado out of them.
