    A new weather product or idea is very interesting to me. I do think weather can make money. I’m just not very good with marketing ideas. I am interested in anything weather. I’m not much interested in the commercial side of things. I’m more into the science of the beast. I want to know the when, where, and most important why the things that happen, happen. I do know this much. Things are changing fast and the way the public is getting their information is heading more towards being on an individual basis rather than as a large group all watching at the same time. I really think things are going to be changing a lot over the next few years and we are going to be stressed and pushed to the max to keep up.

    Hey Kevin, Great blog.. It’s always nice to see someone thinking forward, especially when it comes to meteorology. I enjoy a lot of Seth Godin’s work too. -Dan

      Thanks, Dan. Great to hear from like-minded folks. Now if we could just get everyone to listen to Seth! Keep up the good training work up there is a beautiful part of the country, I love Burlington. Thanks.

  4. Hi Kevin,
    I have a daughter who is intent upon becoming a storm chaser (I mean, meteorologist). Our first chase was May 19th, Norman to Shawnee. (http://valdecor.wordpress.com/2013/05/20/a-first/) .
    The next day kind of put things in perspective, and today – the 31st – even more so. Seems as if even the “bona fide” storm chasers might be a bit rattled now. Not that any of us will quit chasing!
    At any rate, I’m happy to have come across your blog, and you can count me in as a follower :)

      Hi Lyann-
      Wow, judging by your first chase video, you two are going to be pretty good at it! The chasing world seems to be divided into two camps. The ones that are doing serious beneficial research, and the ones who get into the kind of trouble we have seen the last couple of weeks. I look forward to see the valuable research Rane gives us in the years ahead. Stay safe!
      Kevin

      • RDale says:

        I’d add a third camp. Ones that are not doing any sort of research, but are chasing responsibly. I don’t think they should be lumped in with the problem people,.

      • Thank you for the encouraging words, Kevin!
        Tornado Titans founder Chris Sanner minced no words in a Facebook message he posted about storm chasing after the tornadoes around OKC May 31st, and I did my best to formulate a reasonable response: http://valdecor.wordpress.com/2013/06/01/status-update/
        This goes hand in hand with the post by Nate Johnson on your blog: “Someday, Our Luck Will Run Out’, which right now seems, sadly, to have been predictive of the tragic death of storm chaser Tim Samaras in one of the OKC tornadoes of May 31st. Especially tragic since, as far as I know, Tim was one of the most responsible and safety-conscious storm chasers around. I do wonder about the presence of so many storm chasers in that area that night…
        Thank you so much for taking the time to watch our video, and for taking the time to reply :)

    Rob. Yup, my categorization was too broad, but I will stick with the point. Thanks!
