Due to circumstances beyond my control, this issue of Storm Track has been revised to delete
some of the previous copy. In its place are some prints from my collection of severe storm
From this hour I ordain myself loos’d of limits and imaginary lines,
Going where I list, my own master total and absolute,
Listening to others, considering well what they say,
Pausing, searching, receiving, contemplating
Gently, but with undeniable will, divesting myself of the holds that would hold me.
I inhale great draughts of space,
The east and the west are mine, and the north and the south are mine.
The rain knows when to fall,
Coming in this spring to help the seeds,
Choosing to fall by night with a friendly wind,
Silently moistening the whole earth.
Over this silent wilderness the clouds are dark.
The only light shines from a river boat.
Tomorrow morning everything will be red and wet
And all Chengtu will be covered with blossoming flowers.
—Tu Fu (Chinese/T’ang poet)
Subscription Renewal Notice: Your subscription ran out with last month’s issue. Unfortunately,
due to the current cost per issue (0.20c copying and 0.15c postage), next year’s subscription
must go to $2.10. If you’re interested in renewing, now is the time -and also a good time to
send along any articles or cartoon ideas. Future articles will be varied and are planned on
personal experiences with tornado sounds, illustrations of storms which fooled chasers in the
past, revised copyright law information, the fully equipped chase car, etc. Remember, a Storm
Track subscription makes a great gift idea.
