Indiana Storm Outbreak

Another exciting day chasing storms in Indiana with SWATchasers We headed down to southern Indiana and got on some really powerful supercell thunderstorms with rotating wall clouds. Chasing storms is a rush and I am very glad I was with the guys I was with to get us into the right places and keep us safe. We got into a scary few minutes when we got stuck right in the middle of a storm that produced a tornado, and had very strong winds and large hail pounding the car but came away unscathed.

On Assignment: Walk in the Woods

I knew it would be a good day when one of my assignments was to go for a walk in the woods. The area I was sent to is a new piece of land acquired from the Girl Scouts and will be turned into a nature area and community woodlands. However the area is infested with the invasive Asian Bush Honeysuckle that is destroying woodlands by shading out the ground preventing other plants from growing.
