WeatherBrains Episode 326 is now online (April 23, 2012). If you are crazy about weather, this is THE netcast audio program for you!
Tonight’s Guest Panelist is a WeatherBrains alum. Chris Novy came to Birmingham in November to teach spotter safety at the ABC 3340 Weather Xtreme spotter training event. He is perfect to help us debate recent events in the chaser community tonight. His video-rich presentations are always eye-catching, amusing, informative, and occasionally sobering. His message is always the same – no spotter report, no video clip, no smidgen of name recognition, is worth losing your life for.
Tonight’s Guest WeatherBrain found himself staring into the teeth of the Tuscaloosa tornado last April 27th and had the presence of mind to snap what some think is the definitive picture of that beast of a storm (see the photo below). Jimmy Jones is a UPS driver who lives with his family in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. He joins us tonight from his home.
Other discussions in this weekly podcast include topics like:
Our mail bag has been getting some attention and Kevin puts it in perspective.
