Review of “What stands in a storm” by Kim Cross

By | April 3, 2019

I listened sporadically to an old episode of “Tornado Talk” last month while cleaning my son’s room to help soothe the anticipation for the upcoming storm season (only 2 months left for me now!).

The distances you cover while chasing storms
