I'm a NWS Skywarn weather spotter.
Are you?
It seems to be a popular thing, is to get certified to be one.

Thanks,

Come on, there must be at least another one on here.
Is there anyone at least interested in meteorology here on TRF?
As a spotter, I spend LOTS of time doing research, checking all the data to be found on a storm that may hit my area. Taking videos & pictures and sending it to the NWS via phone or PC is so cool!
I LOVE severe weather, but if it interferes with me launching a rocket... :rant:
Thanks,

I have a friend that is, but I just haven't had the time or sufficient interest to do so.

One of the hazards of the hobby from what I've seen on TeeVee.:

Oof, that reminds me of a hailstorm that blew over the local BMW dealer back in s. Texas a few years ago.
Looked like a hoard of drummers with ball peen hammers went over the whole lot.

Yeah, I'm hoping to get my HAM radio license. Working on the test prep.
Thanks,
