Does he help place those sensors in the paths of those tornados?

I watched one of the programs about storm chasers and I started to feel sorry for their vans! Hit by hailstones, splattered with mud and all. Poor vans...

Whoa... on that last picture are there two of them?? Those are really cool pics. You are a brave brave woman to have a husband that is a storm chaser. My boyfriend is going to be a cop, and that scares the crap out of me.

van and had to speed off quick!! if you have questions you can ask me.

Where are you from? That last pic in the first post, looks a little like the beginnings of one of the big wedges that tore through my city in 1999.

I heard that a tornado is unpredictable. When it starts coming your way, are you ever scared it might catch you? Do you basically have to haul butt until it turns to another path?? Have you ever seen multiple ones? you said I could ask questions. I think tornados are my biggest fear when it comes to natural disasters.

yeah it is risk you must take if you are a tornado chaser.
if it stays on the same track of us we have to go to a differnet way.
(dont try this thoe.)
We sometimes see multiple twisters.one time we saw a huge one that broke
down into two.
Tornados are natural disasters.

Wow, those are some cool pics!

Those are amazing photos!

Kansas seems the natural choice for your job!

My question is, how often do people quote lines from The Wizard of Oz to you?
post #19 of 31
Cool pictures. DH guessed you live in Kansas without reading that in your post!!

I love those pictures. Tornados are awesome, but yes can be very deadly. I am a storm chaser myself, but have yet to see a tornado. I have spotted the wall cloud, but no tornado. I have been to sites that were devastated by f-5 tornados in the past. I am a trained spotter for the national weather service. Thanks for the great pictures

Well, I would love to get tatoo of a bobcat and a cougar on my arms, but not a full body tatoo

Wow. Those pictures are very good, even so small you can tell how massive and awe-inspiring they are. Or is that just 'cause I've seen so many myself?

My fav is the big angry black one that's just about to hit those power lines. Amazing.

Are you going to publish a book of your photography, or is it just for hobby?

that is crazy

Doesnt it scare you sometimes

Very cool pics......I'd love to see one as long as no one got hurt!
post #28 of 31
As far as I know, the one that hit our area last November 6 was only caught by a camera on top of a hospital building. It was a huge funnel. (And deadly! Survivors are building a memorial at the mobile home park that had the most fatalities.)
