1Introduce Yourself! Empty Introduce Yourself! on Sun Jan 02, 2011 9:46 am

I thought since this is a relatively new forum it might be a good idea to start a little introductory thread!

I'm from Ringgold, GA, and a REALLY new chaser. My most memorable event so far is 10/26/2010 where I picked the wrong storm and every other person on earth got photos of the tornado I missed! hahah There aren't too many things more painful then seeing people on Facebook who could care less about weather saying "Dude! I just saw a tornado!" But I can't complain, I saw amazing storm structure, my first mammatus that ever showed up in a photo, and it was great experience. I'm pretty much a weekend warrior as far as chasing goes since my job doesn't allow me to really take time off for chasing. I do plan to do at least one long distance chase this year, so I'm dying for spring to get here!

Other than that, I'm in grad school right now getting my Master's degree in Pharmaceutical Laws and Regulations (or as I like to call it FDA stuff). That, work, and weather pretty much takes up all my time.. pirat afro

Hi everyone!
I've been interested in severe weather on and off for a couple of years. My other interests include road cycling/racing, guitar (acoustic, punk rock and thrash metal), photography (started from my interest in severe wx) and chess (I'm really really bad).

I live in Newcastle in the UK (I'm NOT from Scotland!), that means that the most exciting event of the year is a single cell thunderstorm that might or might not happen.

I'm currently struggling through my A-Levels, after performing terribly last year, I am doing the equivalent of 2 years at once Sad

My goals for 2011 are:
-Become a better racer
-Cycle 10 miles in 24 minutes or less
-Cycle 104 miles in less than 5 hours 40 minutes (I probably wont achieve this goal, but it's something to aim for!)
-Become a better chess player
-Pass my exams
-Help forecast/nowcast (Andy, if you need another forecaster/nowcaster, please let me know!)

That's enough about me, looks like a there are a lot of new people here that I haven't met yet!

Make your voice be heard! Reply to this thread Smile

Nice to meet you, Sam! Very Happy

I took a trip to London last summer for vacation! I loved the UK countryside, which we got to see when we traveled out to Bath and Stonehenge...

I hope to hear from others in here soon! Very Happy

Kyle here, from North Dakota. Good to see all the friendly peeps on here. I hope this gets bigger and even better as time goes by. Anybody that wants to chase in the Dakotas, let me know. I go as often as I can and always enjoy good company.

Hi fellow storm fans! My name is Mike. I'm new here. I am in the shallow end of the pool when it comes to meteorology or # of chases, I am however in the extreme deep end of the pool when considering passion/excitement/awe for storms of any kind. I live in Fargo, ND. We get BIG BLIZZARDS here during Nov-March and usually F0-F2's here in the tornado season. F4's occur once every so often. Tornadoes almost ALWAYS are 30 miles away from the Fargo/Moorhead metro area, and either track north towards North/Central ND, or they come across the SD border and track east towards MN and the Twin Cities area.

What weather reporting / radar services do you use?

I find and their NEXAD Radar really useful - along with webcams that might be available, its a great update / tracking service. They have a BETA version which compiles a 3-D 'fly thru' image of the storm so you can see intensities at the different layers of the cloud. Pretty cool!

Thanks for reading, excited to be part of this site.
