Photo of the Day, New HD Tornado Video


Taken just west the Iams pet food plant (which was partially hit by the tornado) just west of Aurora, Nebraska on June 17th. The tornado slowly wraps in rain as it ropes out in front of us, and is shot at 10 mm. It still is mind-blowing of all of the chasers on this tornado on Spotter Network alone, yet only Jeff Snyder and ourselves reported it via it (we reported it twice). Makes you wonder why anyone uses this program other than, "Look at me guys, I'm on Spotter Network!"

Then April 26th, Roll/Crawford, Oklahoma tornadoes in HD is below (click on the HD button). I've been slowly working on a DVD that should be available sometime by the first of October of this year's chases, plus Greensburg tornado in 2007, Quinter, Manhattan tornadoes in 2008 and other dates that aren't coming to mind at the moment.

Good point on SN. What a way to get a free guided chase-cation for some of them. Wait until you see my blog post on why I think Skywarn is almost obsolete. SN is part of it.

I personally don't see the value in SN, I've used it a couple of times, truthfully so my chase buddies at home could see my moves. But noramlly I just leave it off; IMO it's a hell of a lot more efficent to call or radio directly the folks that need to know... By the way, nice move ending up on the West side of that Tornado, bout the time of that picture, I was 500 yards East of it, trying to film in pouring rain and 70mph winds. Wish I would have known West was going to work as well as it did...
