Thad,

Very Nice Website, I really like how it's layed out.Looking forward to seeing you this Chase season 09'

The trouble with weather forecasting is that it's right too often for us to ignore it and wrong too often for us to rely on it. ~Patrick Young

Hi there, Richard, and thanks for signing my Guest Book!

In answer to your question, I have to admit that I am not an expert on storm chasing. I cheated! I signed up to chase with a group called Cloud 9 Tours back in 2004, and have continued chasing with them ever since. In fact, I will be chasing with them once again for the entire month of May this year.

As one might expect, with a storm chasing group such as Cloud 9, we are mobile, so we cover a lot of territory. I believe the record for me, personally, was in 2007 when we were a half a mile from Mexico at one point, and within about a week and a half, we were about 65 miles away from Canada! (We only saw one tornado, by the way...)

Anyway, what I guess I'm trying to say is:

1. Tornadoes are elusive beasts;
2. It helps to be mobile, so you can optimize your chances of seeing a tornado if it does happen; and
3. Mother Nature simply doesn't cooperate sometimes!

I realize that that answer probably isn't terribly helpful. Sorry about that... If you have the opportunity, chasing with Cloud 9 Tours (http://www.cloud9tours.com/) or groups such as them would give you a much better chance of seeing a tornado. Otherwise, just keep doing what you're doing by keeping your eyes to the skies! If you know about the way supercells work --- which you most likely do --- then perhaps Mother Nature will cooperate!

Thad
