    For any new chasers/spotters that are looking to learn more about storm structure, basic forecasting along with great tornado/supercell video, I highly recommend Mike Hollingshead's Storm Structure 101 DVD. It's very informative, professionally edited and goes into more detail than your average Skywarn/Spotter class.

    Been wanting this DVD for a while and since I just sold some astronomical visual filters, I decided to order a copy! I also tossed in Hostile winds blu ray while I was at it :D

    I guess Mike don't post here any more :(

    I just got the DVD and have watched it once. I would like to see all of the annotated pictures included in a PDF file which we could watch at our own pace without having to pause, backup, continue, etc. The chase video footage at the end of the DVD wouldn't have to be included in the PDF, just the annotated pictures. Otherwise, it's a very informative DVD. Thanks to the producer!

    Snapped up the DVD for Christmas, watched it once, and it made my head explode. In a good way. I learned a lot from it. More than that, I learned how much more I have to learn! Well done, and rewatchable for a novice like me.

    Just received my copy two days ago....fantastic. I wish there were more like it. I would pay for even more "basic" ones to. Going over the terms...beginner questions answered. Really enjoyed it.

    Just ordered mine! I have now depleted by bank account by ordering weather related materials. Thank goodness my parents still fund my college knowledge quest.

    Received my copy this week. Excellent! Really enjoyed the way the lessons were overlaid on real events. Would echo Dave Rennie's comment that the stills be included as an PDF file as they were somewhat blurry when paused, especially the forecast portion.
    An outstanding introduction to storm chasing, thanks to Mike for taking the time to produce it.

    He has a new one called Storm Analysis. Its just under 7 hours long and was still priced at 25 dollars the other day. Received it in the mail yesterday, but haven't watched yet.

    Yep. I put in an order for Storm Structure 101 and he contacted me right away and offered to send Storm Analysis instead. I'll take five more hours of material!

    Thanks for the link!

    I received the bluray within 2 days of placing the order. Watched it all the way through. $25 is a real fair price for the excellent content, in my opinion.

    He confirmed that I wanted the new one also, so I'm looking forward to getting 7 hours of fun.
