During my 9 seasons I have collected a lot of amazing storm footage. Photos I have collected and show both here on StormChasingUSA.com as well as on my Instagram account. Although I am happy about all the amazing photos I have taken I am, like many other chasers, never really satisfied with my collection or […]

tours 2020

I have made a sendout to all storm chasing tour companies to ask for an update on whether they run tours in 2020 or not. In general, the ones who do run tours did not run their early tours (April, early May) and had some of their tour guests from those tours being moved to […]

My storm chasing vacation of 2020 is cancelled – and it is painful

2020 season cancelled

In the advert of the Covid-19 outbreak I was still expecting to chase (albeit with some difficulties) but ever since the US closed the borders for travelers from Europe in March, I have known that the chances for me chasing this year has been slim. The borders were, at first, closed for 30 days but […]

There is not much needed to say about the Corona virus as I am sure you are quite well informed about the health situation. The effects of this pandemic are obviously vast and it affects (most importantly) the health of people, the World economy but also storm chasing. Most chasers are US based and may […]

Who is Gregg Potter? I was born in Cleveland, OH and moved to Castle Rock, CO when I was 6 years old. With storms blowing up along the front range of the Rockies, I got my love for the weather and storms at a young age. I knew I’d be a Meteorologist by the time […]

Music is a big part of my life and I have some sort of music on during much of the hours I am awake. I use music to accompany my mood or use it to change or enhance my mood. When it comes to storm chasing I usually travel with others and we usually go […]

At home, we have a Samsung “The Frame” TV. You know, one of those that you can put in “Art mode” and it looks like a painting. We don’t have it connected to the normal cable but internet only. As such, we only watch streamed content on YouTube or Netflix. Most of the time, we […]

It is difficult not to have a double-sided attitude towards social media nowadays. At its best, it is a fun and excellent source of information, the perfect way to quickly get crucial information, and to keep in touch with friends, acquaintances and like-minded all over the world.  At its worst, social media can be used to easily spread […]

I live very close to the Falsterbo Horse Show which is an annual and very popular horse event in Sweden. It is also a good time to get the heck out of Falsterbo, rent out the house and go visit friends around the country, which is exactly what I did with my family. I was happy […]
