2008 was about as active and deadly as a year gets severe weather wise. As such, it was a hectic, crazy year. I expanded my network among fellow chasers, learned some really harsh lessons, had some really close calls, and filmed the most intense footage of my chase career. The footage landed me a brief gig with FOX news which also taught me a lesson in dealing with the media. 2008 also saw the death of my beloved chase vehicle, Aerostorm…which this website is named after.
