I tried not to look and went nearly 2 weeks without doing so. However there has been some buzz from fellow chasers about things being seen on longer range models. I began peaking for myself and sure enough am beginning to see some real teases.
Yea, it wont be too much longer now. The above would probably bring some warm rain to the area and if I'm lucky a rumble of thunder. Typically this area sees its first thunderstorms around the end of February so to see them in January is a bit rare. It did happen in 08 though!
So while Im not holding my breath just yet, I am starting to get a little giddy at the thought of spring time air being less than 2 months away. Ive looked at some el nino springs around here including the years 1996 and 2003 and found them to be pretty awesome years around here. Lets hope history repeats itself.
Once I get my HD camcorder I think I am all done with upgrades for the 2010 season. Everything I mentioned before has already been purchased and taken care of minus the hail guards which I still need to follow up with the shop on. I really hope they can pull through for me and get them done.
Site updates are still happening and Im getting close to a point where there wont be too much to update except for new content and past events I choose to do write ups on. Im also working with 5 other IL chasers to build a new multi purpose chase site names convectiveaddiction.com - don't even bother visiting right now. We haven't launched it yet.
The models are showing some potential severe setups in the deep south as well. Ill be watching!
