Saturday, April 26, 2008
The photo's taken from my deck. Don't worry I'm not eleven feet tall.
So my dog continued to happily munch on her log and I stayed waiting on the wind. Wind kicked up to maybe a 40 mph gust but nothing that great. I did see a little rotation in the clouds above me but nothing to send me running to the basement.
If anyone is interested April 29 - May 1st is looking interesting for storms. Will someone babysit so I can go chase!
I am a storm chaser. Scratch that. I freaking worship storms. You have your tree huggers, I'm a tornado hugger. Don't try it, hurts like Hell.
This time of year I'm like a kid at Christmas. My wife laughs at me because when a decent storm comes up I usually have the radio going loud, running to the computer to check radars, and running outside to see what's going on. Okay, it's more like a tweaker on meth.
Don't do drugs kids. Seriously. The drug companies will own us all someday.
With life being usually complicated, I have a baby due SOON. Like in the next ten days. This really makes me rethink about all the chasing and the close calls I've had. There have been a few, and this baby makes number two.
I don't think that I'll give it up. I can't. Storm chasing is one of my strongest passions in life, stronger than my need to write.
