STORM CHASING SECOND GRADER DOCUMENTS SUPERCELLS, TORNADOES AND LIGHTNING
Being face to face with an EF-3 tornado is all in a days work for second grader Chase. At age 7, he has already witnessed a dozen tornadoes on storm chases in Texas, Florida, and Kansas with his mother and I.
He had really begun to show interest in photography and weather for the last couple years, so we started bringing him on local storm chases. In May of 2016, we decided that he was mature enough to accompany us on setups that are favorable for tornadoes.
