Hello from Florida.

I've enjoyed storm spotting & chasing at a more casual pace since 2006. Recently, I've turned it into a fun spring & summer hobby! I spot for SKYWARN in NE Florida (kJAX/kMLB). The tools I use are RadarOmega, SpotterNetwork, Chaser Location, mPING & MyRadar. While I'm not a meteorologist, in another life where I didn't own a business, I'm positive I would be!

Something on my bucket list is chasing with the pros in the plains and getting up close and personal with an f3+ (not many of those here in FL)

Hello, I am Joshua Sims and I am rejoining the site after a few years away. I'm actually one of the first people to introduce myself on this very thread, I'm like the 6th post on this thread, I no longer have access to the email attached to that account so I had to make a new one. I have relocated to Florida due to joining the Navy almost two years ago.

Hello, I'm Jessica and I happen to be a 25-year-old college graduate who loves literature. I can talk about any era of literature, ranging from Shakespeare to Flannery O'Connor - plus some contemporary authors past my area of expertise. I also am a weather enthusiast who got into weather events since I was a child with Hurricane Katrina, and more so since the March 2, 2012 tornado outbreak. That day was when an EF-2 tornado hit East Bernstadt, about 30 minutes north of where I currently reside. However, what really got me into the community was after the Nashville and Cookeville tornadoes. EAS scenarios fascinate me, but I also have a sense of determining what is fiction versus reality. In my spare time, I talk with other weather enthusiasts on Discord, browse interesting articles on the internet, and read books.

Hello, my name is Cody. I'm from Georgia, more specifically northwest Georgia. I've been interested in weather since I was a kid. It's always just been a hobby, but now I really want to dive deeper and learn more about, well, everything really. I found this forum while googling something I read in a convective outlook forecast, and I'm really glad I found it. Seems like I can learn a ton of awesome things here!

Hey all! My name is Chris, and I'm out of the Cedar Rapids, IA area. I've always been interested in weather since the floods of 1993, but have only really been looking into learning more over the last few years. I did my first spotter training just a couple of months before the derecho hit Cedar Rapids last year, and going through that storm really amped up my desire to learn more to help people not be caught in situations like that. I'm looking forward to learning from all the valuable information here and can't wait to get to know everyone.

I'm Lexie from Metropolis, IL! I work in insurance and though I do hate dealing with claims, I have always loved weather, specifically severe weather. I am so excited as I have just finished training to be a spotter. I would love to chase storms for a living and eventually plan to be a CAT adjuster. Very excited to be a part of this group and learn!

Hi I'm Daryl, out of Farmington NH.
I've been a weather enthusiast since I was a little kid, standing outside with my dad watching thunderstorms roll in. I've been a skywarn spotter for a couple of years, and am interested in gaining a better understanding of the hows and whys of severe weather.
Thanks!

My name is Phoenix, and I'm a trans storm chaser from Northwood, NH. I've been interested in meteorology for almost ten years now after I found Storm Chasers on Netflix. I've been filming the weather since 2014 and 2021 is my first full season of driving and chasing since I got my license. I'm always wanting to learn more about the science behind the weather and I'm planning on studying meteorology in college.

Hi ya'll, my name is Jolien and I'm from the Netherlands, Europe. I've been chasing in Europe since 2014, and its my biggest passion. Every year we are trying to get bigger storms and we chase more and moie in The Netherlands, Belgium, France and Germany. Even when I'm on holiday, I watch the weather. My husband is a good one, because he even proposed me while chasing a storm on our holiday in Greece :D

So we'd planned to go to tornado alley in 2020, but as we all know that didn't work out. For this year its the same, but I'm also gratuating so this year we'll might be going to Italy for an Europe chase :p

But then 2022 will be our year. Together with my chasefriends we will come to tornado alley for at least 1 month. And I'm allready looking forwart to it :D And I'm preparing, by watching all kinds of informative video's from Skip Talbot and Pecos Hank. If you have more informative video's, pls let me know :D

Hi! I'm Greg and I'm from the Muscle Shoals area of NW Alabama. I've been a weather enthusiast since April of 1977 when an F5 roared across NW Birmingham. That was only a few miles from my childhood home and ever since then my eyes have been on the skies. Recently began "chasing" beyond my local area. Stretching my legs into the Mississippi Delta looking to photograph storm structure and lightning in the flat lands more so than wrangling tornadoes on the tree lined roads of Dixie Alley.
