Why I never went chasing with Weather Gods in 2013

This blog post has, as well as many of my tour reviews, been back-dated to the time of when it occurred. In 2013 I decided quite late (in March) to go storm chasing and decided to go with Weather Gods from May 10th to May 19th. I chose this tour because it seemed like many...

StormChasingUSA.com featured in Focus Magazine in Ukraine

In May 2013 StormChasingUSA.com, and me, was featured in Focus Magazine in Ukraine with an interview about storm chasing. The interview was over email and the article can only be read in Ukrainian. Through the help of Google translate I could at least read, and understand, some of the article. This was the second time...

Five day tour with PDS Storm Tours

This blog entry was originally written on my personal blog and directed (simplified) to my friends (who don’t know anything about storm chasing). I have translated it as it was and left it with no major editing. This was my second trip and I didn’t know that much about storm chasing at the time. I...

StormChasingUSA.com featured in Swedish newspaper Expressen

The article received quite a lot of attention and was one of the most read articles that day, it ended up on the...

Day 14 – A puny tornado

We went down to Texas our last day and I’m now on my way home from there. I will have about 2 hours sleep before I go to the airport and then back to Stockholm. We ended Day 13 at a gimmick Texas theme restaurant – The Great Texan. They had bull cojones (“mountain mushrooms”)...

Sitting in the car now on the way from Colorado to Texas to position for the very last Storm Chasing Day. Texas is supposed to be quite promising for tomorrow, and Texas feels good – everything is a bit bigger in Texas – and it was here we saw our first super-cell. I heard this...

Day 12 – Photogenic storms

Day 12 turned out to be a classic Storm Chase-day. We went to Colorado in the morning and drove toward a promising storm, but the roads were not in the same direction as the storm so we got behind and inside the storm again, which meant rain and poor visibility. Fortunately, the storms pops up...

Day 11 – Caught in a mesocyclone

I was talking about broken expectations yesterday. I do not know what the opposite would be called, but it was certainly what happened today. In the morning two girls dropped out of Tour. They have had a bit different expectations about Storm Chasing (more party, less waiting – more shopping, less driving). They were quite...

Day 10 – Broken expectations

Today was the most promising day of the year according to the forecast. I tried not to get my expectations up too much but it was of course difficult. Especially, when the day begins with the first storm coming in over us when we are driving already at 11:30 a.m. A lightning bangs down about...

Day 9 – Down day

The large low pressure that caused the storms we have been observing lately has come to pass, and our choice was either to continue eastward to Illinois, or wait a day and go back to Kansas on Tuesday. We chose the latter and took a  so called “Down day”. During Down days, you often go...
