Recent Storm Spotting Trips

This subsection contain a link to a page featuring some of my recent storm spotting trips. Each trip includes a map of the area and pins that display an image of the scene captured (images are stored in my "Storms" photo album). Also included are storm related notes that I jot down while spotting. These notes are the labels for scenes on maps.

About Storm Spotting

My storm spotting trips involve capturing disturbed states of Earth's atmosphere using a camera, positioning those measurements in space and time and then sharing those measurements with others [1]. I tend to spot thunderstorm activity, blizzards, ice storms and snow storms most. I am a degreed meteorologist and am adequately equipped to spot storms for the National Weather Service. Unlike many "storm chasers" who I am familiar with, I seldom go out of my way by more than 50 miles or so to spot. Such small trips usually prevent me from capturing the most severe of storms in a region on any given day. Nevertheless, storm spotting for me has been very rewarding because every time I go storm spotting I learn something new!
