On Tuesday, March 29, 2016, a 20 acre grass fire spread rapidly threatening hundreds of residents in homes and apartments. Nazarene Bible College was also threatened as flames reached the parking lot of the college, just a few yards from nearby buildings. The fire burned near the intersection of S Academy Blvd and Fountain Blvd. […]

2017 Solar Eclipse from Ravenna, NE
My adorable 6 year old boys explaining what they are seeing in the storm clouds west of Goodland, KS this evening.
I have never seen lightning fire this fast before. Video captured in Colorado Springs on July 28, 2016 near the Colorado Springs Airport. This storm produced 3″ tennis ball sized hail and strong winds. It also knocked out power to southeastern Colorado Springs.
There’s a term in storm chasing called “Colorado Magic”. Colorado Magic refers to Colorado’s unique ability to produce tornados in less than favorable conditions – such as mediocre CAPE and weak shear – in the middle of August. While most storm chasers think the chase season ends in early June, the reality is that tornados […]
I took my 5 year old boys storm chasing today, and it was the best bust day ever! I started in Las Animas, CO. While everybody else was chasing the TOR WAR storm near near Lamar, I went south on 109 after what looked like a good cell. One other spotter network dot did the […]
Rolled over cars, collapsed buildings under construction, and a huge snow boulder. It’s all featured in this video of the blizzard aftermath from Monument, Colorado and Colorado Springs, CO. Recorded March 24, 2017.

It should come as no surprise that storm chasers do not eat well while chasing storms. Storm chasers will often chase for up to 18 hours at a time non-stop. During the chase, chasers don’t have time to eat good food. Usually lunch and dinner is whatever we can find at a gas station. Often […]
Driving south on I-25 on Saturday, May 9th, 2015. I was trying to catch up with a tornado that had just touched down in Hanover, CO. Suddenly a large amount of pea sized hail came down and covered the road. I estimate about 6″ of hail was on the road.
This is the aftermath of a hail storm that left 8 inches of hail on the road and shut down I-25 and numerous side roads for hours until snow plows could come through and clear the roads. The piles of hail you see on the side of the road took 2 days to melt. This […]
