    As if being a TV weatherman give you the skills to chase storms. I'm glad they are all okay and hope they learned a valuable lesson. Looking good in front of a camera doesn't make you a storm chaser.

    I love being in the middle of nasty storms. When the tornado sirens are going off, I'm the guy in the middle of the street with a drink in one hand and my phone in the other trying to tape it. I got it from my dad. The first tornado I ever saw, my whole family was in the middle of the street and my dad had one of those cinderblock sized video cameras on his shoulder. It wasn't in till an entire tree, roots and all, came flying a over our heads that my dad made us go inside. He stayed out there though, and got some wild fuckin footage.

    I'd love to be a storm chaser. But me and science go together like oil and water. I'm afraid my thrill seeking side would take over and I'd drive right into the first twister. So I'll stick to my front porch tornado parties. The last one I had I anchored the grill down to the porch and cooked beer brats and chicken wings. An F3 ripped apart Churchill downs and dropped parts of its roof all over my neighborhood
