title says it all pretty much. Im a 30 yr old full time high school teacher here in London (but storm chaser at heart). far from an expert but this has been a passion of mine since I can remember (how many 13 year olds buy a book on cloud types / formations and memorize it?)
looking to meet up with other local area chasers on storm days - (my girlfriend is getting tired of me making her go with me - but hey, its hard to read the updated radar, google maps , take pics, and drive right? )

you can *** guess I do not have enough posts to provide email - so lets try phone 519-851-**** - texting works too - edited to avoid spam!!
(that felt a little too much like a write up for a dating site..! oh well, )

anyone like the looks of Aug. 2 ??

We have some seasoned SWON chasers on here -- good luck in finding a chase partner, Spartan!

And we have a thread right now discussing August 2 -- it'll pick up in activity by tomorrow. Unfortunately we don't really have any forecasters on here -- just hobbyists and the like. I personally think she'll be a dud any where northeast of London. ;)

sounds good !


and you are correct whomever mentioned this year has been a bit of a let down (though I have seen a few good ones - 3 to be exact. - one meso with crazy rotation at the base - thought it might drop, but nope. . drech. the other two - wind so strong ripped my driver side wiper right off while driving - yikes..bad roads, its was moving fast too. other 3rd, what the storm just two wks ago that dropped the F2 just SW of London. I hoped on that exact cell, just SW of London...couldnt have missed by more than 30min. great structure though. good pics.

Just a note to all - it's best to post phone numbers and email addresses in private messages (PMs) only.

ESPECIALLY email addresses - anything posted on a public place will be recorded by spam bots that search the web for email addresses, and you'll end up on a hundred different email spam scripts. This forum has a feature which changes the text of emails into a graphic, but it's still not safe posting email addresses anywhere on the web. You'll wake up every morning to find 200 spam emails in your inbox each day. Just a heads up!

What high school do you teach at hope, hehe hope it`s not beal or south secondary you`ll remember me for the wrong reasons haha. Anyways I chase in Middlesex and surrounding counties for the past 6 years (I`m 24) and continure to do so. This year I took it easy because 2008-2010 I put a lot of effort into chasing and taking it easy this year but maybe for 2012 we can chase aggressively...plus it would be nice to chase with radar for once haha.

itchy, lets try this, were you Catholic or public board (Im thinking Public due to schools you listed) and just to clarify , NO!! I am not the teacher referenced in local news tonight!!

getting back to the storms, London currently under WW - looks like most cells stay south of London though - its currently 6:25pm - there is a cell over Sarnia currently...anyone on the road??
