Super Tuesday was my 2nd or 3rd storm chase. I had never seen LP supercells like these much less LP supercells and watched tornadogenesis happen before my eyes. Was in complete awe..... Tracked the storm that formed over Bartlett and later dropped a tornado over parts of Arlington. Next got the northern Fayette County storm and tried to stay with it all the way to Madison County but could not keep up with the debris on the back roads. All this while calling my wife that worked at the Sams on Winchester telling her to pull mattress off the racks and put people under them as a tornado was headed her way (hit the Hickory Ridge mall about a mile west of her location).

I think it needs to be broadcast live.  Easy to do that these days.

Oooh, I smell an Emmy... at least I think that's what I'm smelling.

It would sweep all awards. By far my best idea ever. If you have ever been in a late night chat with Andy and Bruce going at it, hilarious. Just imagine those two crammed in a car, high stress due to the chase...gold Jerry, GOLD!!(Seinfeld reference for Millennials)

If you want them "crammed," I found the car.  Just paint it orange, add a power T, and they're good to go.  Anyone want to start the GoFundMe account?

A page I follow on Facebook, Severe Weather Outlook for Eastern Tennessee, posted the following, which I thought was interesting enough to at least share.  They reposted it, along with lots of other stuff, from Accuweather, so take it for what it's worth.  Anyway, it's a boring, gray day with no snow or thunder in sight so this is better than nothing:

Severe weather to kick off early in Southeast, Tennessee Valley, Gulf Coast

While severe weather may dodge areas farther north, it will waste no time heating up in the Southeast, Gulf Coast and Tennessee Valley.

Forecasters are calling for two or three big severe events as early as March.

And remember:  I'll be helping our chase team by getting them directly under the storm.  (That Super Tuesday chase had me guiding folks from my radar.  I dropped them right up underneath it.  I'm good at this game...but you know, maybe stay a few blocks away from where I pinpoint ya ;) )

Spring sure doesn't look like it is going to get a early start. March looks on the cool to cold side. I think we are going to have a normal spring and summer season. I don't expect much extremes, we will have storms but they hype for some overly volatile spring is more hype than reality I think. That has certainly been the trend the last few years. Not saying we couldn't have a overly active active spring but there is nothing that screams that for sure right now. Here's to a nice normal average ::popcorn:: spring and summer.
