Did a Virginia storm chasing presentation to a Virginia Tech Survey of Meteorology class this morning. It’s always fun to talk about chasing storms here in the Old Dominion, but it’s especially fun talking to a meteorology class.

During these presentations I always show this video clip of a June 2011 hail storm I got caught in:

Fortunately the hail size didn’t get large enough to crack the windshield, but I definitely was not prepared for this cell that blew up literally over my head. (Chasemobile has a few dimples from this storm.)

Oh, and talking chasing always helps dispel the late winter blahs!!
