For the man sound in body and serene of mind
there is no such thing as bad weather;
every sky has its beauty,
and storms which whip the blood do but make it pulse more vigorously.

Weather Journal / Articles
- Weather Blog
- My journal of interesting weather here in Fort Wayne, or wherever I happen to be. Unfortunately, I have not made any journal entries since March 2010.
- Extreme Tornado Tours 2009
- My journal and photos of my Extreme Tornado Tour in May, 2009. We experienced the debris zone of a tornado! TWICE! We first encountered the Kirksville, Missouri, tornado west of town, then several minutes later east of town. Both times it was rain-wrapped and difficult to see coming, and both times we found ourselves within a hundred yards of the tornado before realizing we needed to BACK UP.
- 3 April 1974 Remembered
- My recollection of the Super Outbreak of tornadoes on 3-4 April 1974, in particular the Louisville Tornado. Included are a few pictures I took of the devastation in the Louisville area a couple of days later.
- The Blizzard of 07
- They promised it, and it came. Not quite as much as they promised, but as much snow in one storm as in all of 2006! Visit this article for the unfolding NWS forecasts, my take on it all, and a photo gallery.
- 2007-04-30 Long Narrow Thunderstorm Line
- An extremely thin (only one thundercell wide for the first couple of hours) and eventually quite long line of thunderstorms developed virtually out of clear air in less than two hours. Visit this article for a discussion, satellite images and animation, and radar animition of this curious event.
- Two True Weathermen
- My little tribute to two television weather guys that inspired me along the way, true meteorologists in a sea of talking heads and aspiring somthing-elses.
- Technical articles, mostly copied from somewhere else and stored here for safe keeping.
