      Are there any weather geeks in the forum?

      I have always been fasinated with the weather.
      Weather usually plays a big role in the majority of my dreams.

      Weather can get rather involved.

      Ahh I love storms and stuff, too. Whenever there's a big summer storm I just pull a lawn chair out onto the deck and watch it. Someday I really want to see a tornado or something... hopefully at someone else's house and not mine...

      Also, when I was younger I used to have tons of dreams where I was being chased by tornadoes. Mostly I was at my grandma's house, and I had to run like hell down a dirt road to try and make it to the house in time. Once when I was about to get sucked up, it turned out the tornado was actually my dad (don't ask me how...). So instead of dying I just got picked up and then we went and smashed buildings and stuff...I'm weird.

      oooh, that reminds me of this lucid dream i had, it was raining and there were street lights outside. i looked up at the rain falling down, it was going right through me! i could actually feel the rain inside of me, it was the weirdest feeling...

      strangely though, weather is quite absent from most of my lucid dreams. anyone try summoning weather storms? that might be interesting...

      btw, freaky weather we've been having. california has been like 20 degrees above normal for the last month... and dry.

      Weather! I love it! Like to look as wind vector maps, isobar maps, NEXRAD, simulations. I even considered applying for a job in our regional NWS office. Unfortunately, it only paid about $23K a year =(

      Really enjoy intense thunder storms and tornados!

      I used to live in the mid-west. Always tornados in the spring.

      I've even flown into some of them on purpose in a couple of my LDs. FUN!!!

      I have always wanted to take a trip to the midwest just to see some of the remarkable skies & thunderstorms. I wouln't even need to see a tornado.
      I bought from Oregon scientific a virtual weather station that hooks up to your computer. It monters all that crap like humidity,barametric pressure, etc. And keeps adaily log.

      Im originally from the Midwest (Chicago) and I guess growing up there has made me love wind alot. I love Windy days and nights. Winds in the 30 mph range is just right for me.

      Yay! I spent many years in the Chicago 'burbs!
      Saw part of my subdivision wiped out by a tornado. It even got our school, we spent one year in trailers!

      OMG! Seeker I know that had to be scary. I don't know how I would react in the face of a tornado. Hopefully I never have to find out. But I also lived in South Holland Il Southeast suburbs.

      I was on the northwest, side. Not a bad place to live. Went back there this summer. Some things haven't changed. Some have changed a lot!

      I used to be scared to death and fascinated by those things, before I learned how to LD and flew in them. Now, I am just facinated with them.

      I loved the movie Twister! Sooooo realistic!!!

      Seeker:
      Have you been to the Taste of Chicago before? Im going this year in June, I actually haven't been back home in about 3 years. But I cannot substitute anything for my new home now. Palm trees and the Atlantic is the way to live in the 21st century

      Never been there. This summer was the first time my family has been to ChiTown. Took them to my old subdivision, Museum of Sci. and Ind., Field Museum, Sears Tower, around the Wacker drive area (blues bros. chase scene) and Grant park.

      Oh yeah, and scared the jeebies out of them on the Kennedy expressway!

      Man! That brings back memories. I Love going to Navy Pier also. And especially the Alder Planetarium. Yeah the Kennedy is one serious expressway. Just like Dan Ryan and Lake Shore Drive a.k.a the outter drive. I do Miss alll the tall skyscrapers. Chicago has the best Skyline in the World!

      Living in North east Ohio We are just entering spring> Which means the onset of thundrstorms. :bravo:
      Why the hell is Ohio considered the midwest. Look @ where the hell it is. If we are the mid west then the U.S is comprised of 80% west. The Mississippi river should be the dividing line I think. We are East!!!!!!

      That depends on when in the season you're going. Starting in Texas in March, the most intense area of activity generally shifts north and eastward through late spring and summer. If you want the best unobstructed viewing of classic supercells and violent tornadoes, your best bet would be Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas from late March - late May. The Great Plains have the highest concentration of large tornadoes and the flatness of the landscape makes for excellent viewing conditions.

      Thanks for the advice Peregrinus.
      I new texas had the most tornadoes per year but I thought it might be because its size. Which to some degree it probably does. But it sounds like that is still the hotspot to go.
      Any area where you can see all that sky would be great.
      I would enjoy just studying the clouds.
      I have been wanting to get the international could atlas for some time now but it is around $300 dollars.
      I will stick to my National audobon cloud referance guide.

      Not all of TX has good viewing for severe weather-- it's mainly in western and northern TX that's flat and has the high concentration of severe storms in the spring. Don't discount OK and KA, though. On May 3, 1999, a mile wide F5 produced the highest windspeeds on earth just south and east of Oklahoma City in central OK. As far as density or concentration of severe storms goes, west TX, central OK, and KA are probably about equal during their peaks in the season.

      I have been to Mt St Helens.
      It was the most natural remarkable thing I have seen to date. Even more awe inspiring than the red woods or the genad Canyon to me.

      Good heavens!
      Looking back upon this post sucks. Because now we are entering the onset of winter. Officially not until December 21st. But believe me living in the snow belt as I do it begins much earlier than that. 9" where I live. They were calling for 28 in the beginning
      That is lake effect for you.
      I purchased an Oregon scientific weather station. It is great. It keeps more logs on your computer than you can imagine. Shit that is Greek to me.
      But for the record between that and my own knowledge of the weather around my area I am one up so far over the professional forecasters.

      Hee hee...I'm kind of glad you resurrected this thread since I wasn't around when it started.

      I'm a meteorologist's daughter--not a TV weatherman; the real deal. Specializes in NEXRAD and tropical systems. I LOVE weather. I've ridden through one of the strongest typhoons in the past 10 years (Supertyphoon Paka crossed Guam in 1997 with sustained winds of 190, gusts up to 225, although the censors broke immediately after this gust and the NWS wouldn't officiate it), I've seen Nebraska skies that would scare you into submission, and spent a few terrifyingly exciting minutes in a makeshift stormcellar waiting for my house to disappear. And you know what? I wouldn't change a second of it!

      I even corrected my Chemistry professor in class when he made an offhanded comment about tropical systems. When he told me I didn't know what he was talking about, I brought in a textbook my dad wrote and proved him wrong...and it was HILARIOUS. lol.

      To summarize the above--I am a weather nut, geek, nerd--whatever you want to call me. And I wear the title proudly.
      We break the
      ceiling and grin and gasp
      and redefine life
      for the ones who
      have merely lived it.
