2019 was the last time I went chasing storms and, man, have I been missing it – but now I am finally coming back! The reason for not going in 2020 and 2021 is obvious but this year the timing just wasn’t good. For 11 years, I worked full-time with my own business and had […]
I am happy to finally be able to launch a web application I started making last summer but haven’t come around to finish until now: StormWindow. StormWindow is a web application where you can get an overview of what is going on in terms of storms at the moment, as well as the last 24 […]
Note: The image is NOT a scene from any of the movies mentioned but rather just some photo editing. Although tornadoes are frequent in movies they are often pictured more as a backdrop to enhance a disaster movie or the likes of it. The storm chasing community has not been spoiled with great movies – […]
As you may be very well aware of, the storm chasing tours have been severely impacted by the Covid-19 outbreak and the subsequent travel bans. Many tour companies cancelled their tours in 2020 completely and those who didn’t only held very few and highly restricted tours. For most, 2020 was a terrible year for chasing […]
There is no clickbait and no surprise here. Covid-19 is putting its ugly wet blanket over this season for me and (almost) all fellow storm chasing europeans and most other non-americans. The borders are still closed and even if they would open up I would assume it would only be for vaccinated people. In Sweden, […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 Iâ€™d be a Meteorologist by the time […]
Storm Deprivation Syndrome (abbreviated SDS) is a anxiety syndrom that mainly affects storm chasers when there are no storms to chase for an extended period of time – typically in the off-season. Prevalence SDS is very rare in the general population but is greatly prevalent among the demographic group of so called storm chasers – […]
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 […]
I continue with last year’s endeavour to interview tour company owners and tour guides from different storm chasing tour companies. Today, the interview is with Roger Hill, the owner and tour guide for Silver Lining Tours. He does not only run the biggest tour company in town, he is also the Guiness’ Book of Records World […]
I am very happy right now. I have just finalized my registration and bought a plane ticket to OKC in order to chase with Extreme Tornado Tours this season. For a long while it seemed like it would not be possible as I have a two year old son and a 3 month old daughter […]
