I'm surprise there isn't this thread already. I've been in the chat and people have been talking about storms. Use this thread to talk about past, current, and future weather. Or any interesting weather stories.

I've been interested in weather since 4. I always watched The Weather channel. I've only seen dime size hail. I've seen 85 mph winds. I've been two blocks away from a tornado in 1998. I love weather.

Tuesday, Wednesday, and maybe Thursday there are severe storms expected. I can't wait.

i was caught out in a tornado.... last year i think? there were two that hit the springfield, MA area, i was out in the second one. On my way home from VT. It was so bad on the highways that we all ended up stopping dead in the road, just a line of cars. Once i made it to the Holyoke mall exit i pulled off the highway and sat it out in a parking lot. the hail was maybe 3/4 inch at most but it sounds like it's going to destroy your car when it hits! I didn't actually see a funnel cloud, but apparently there was a tornado in the area.

Also i remember hurricane gloria- i was five. Irene was a doozy last year but not nearly as bad! The wind was scary though.

It snowed so heavily the Christmas before the last one that we literally couldn't get out of the house. I took a photo of the ice but my story is crap so I doubt anyone would even care about seeing it.

British people could infiltrate this thread and turn it into weather spam. Nobody talks about the weather like us Brits.

Weather is so unpredictable here in Texas.

I also live right in the zone of Tornados. o_o

A tornado dropped down about a mile from my house once. It snowed about a foot before Halloween this year. Also, my house flooded during tropical storm Lee in September.

I just got caught in a rain storm so bad my whole "don't get into cars with strangers" train of thought went out the window when some man pulled up beside me and offered me a lift. Totally worth the awkward chat & fear he was going to kidnap me.

I love talking about weather events too! Great thread.

I used to have a lot of dreams about tornadoes chasing me, at a time when my life was in turmoil.

Living near Chicago, I have experienced major snow, thunderstorms, heat waves, you name it. Never saw a tornado though, yet.

I like taking pictures of storms rolling in and I won't take cover until the last second....

This could potentially become my new favourite thread :wub: I'm just about to start apply to universities for meteorology courses so yeah, it's my thang. I saw a funnel cloud drop in front of me last year in Florida, I'm talking EF0 like but that was awesome, like nerdily seriously awesome seen as I live in the UK. And in 2006 me and my family were wholed up in the villa in Florida when two tornadoes touched down on main interstate up the road, I have never seen weather like it, it was one hell of a system that lasted for a good number of hours.

Same here :P I nearly froze to death wading through snow to get a photo of the field outside last time it snowed. I got a cold and the photo was crap. The snow even got inside my phone.

...But sometimes it's great.

1. one time i was at a studio in Brooklyn that was facing manhattan across the river... a storm rolled in and i watched lightning hit the empire state building! It was amazing!

2. one of the hosts/announcer guys on the Weather Channel used to be in a band in CT. He is probably 10 years older than me, i use to go to his shows. I have a picture of him dressed up in womens clothing, and also in a thong and makeup. He is a NUT! I laugh every time i see him on TV!!! (not saying names OR posting pics as i don't want to negatively affect his job.)

the weather pretty much went back to 'normal' after that wierd heat wave. we ranged from 30 to 70 degrees, which now that i look at it seems strange but that really is the normal weather for april here. tomorrow is supposed to be a lovely 73, and i hope the nice weather holds out until this weekend

When I was little I used to love to watch the weather channel. I would ask my dad every night to watch it with me.
We used to get really bad storms over the summer. Practicing safety procedure, I would get all my dress up clothes and stuffed animals etc and take them downstairs, headed for the basement. :lol:

I have to small talk about the weather all day at work and now I have to do it here too? :mad:
Just kidding.:P
I really love thunderstorms, my dad and I will sit in the back yard and watch them come in. It's nice father daughter bonding.

What a terribly English thread. I love it.

The weather has been horrendous recently, after our heat wave just before Easter that gave us something in the region of a fortnight of gorgeous weather this constant gloom is now pretty depressing. In the sunshine everyone at my uni accomodation spent all day every day sitting out on our front gardens, having BBQs, waterfights and parties in paddling pools. It was amazing, everyone just felt so happy all the time. Now the fact the weather has changed so dramatically it makes the fact it is shit so much worse. I had gone out and bought summery clothes, left my coat 200 miles away back home and was ready to get a good tan. Bleurghhh. Summer better return before everyone leaves uni in a few weeks else it is just going to wreck what should be a great end to the year.

Oh boy... as someone from Michigan I have a few little stories to tell you. :tired:
One day last October it was nice and sunny one moment and about 50F... well, within half an hour clouds started to gather, the temperature dropped to about 35F, and then it started hailing like crazy. In less than half an hour. :lol:

Wind storms with with winds over 70mph are a somewhat common occurrence in spring and early fall. Those are fun. :thumbsup:

Wikipedia says the average summer temperatures are about 82F for a typical day... that's bullshit, try more like 90F
