    Hell yeah! It looks like I may just get my first storm chasing day in! We have a line building to the SW moving E-NE with imbedded super cells in it. I can't wait until 3:25 when my kiddos get to go home. I may just grab the scanner and my camera and see what trouble I can get into.

    Anyone else chase?

    Yeah I am way to nervous/excited to get that close. None of that stuff you see on the weather channel or discovery. That is why I take my 50-500mm lens so I can stay that much farther away.

    No it looks like it may fizzle out before I get out of school. We will have to see.

    I would love to chase those. I did hurricane walks, and the new Subaru is going to be set up for extreme weather.
