    Crazy, the returns over your area looked very similar to mine I had thought. Was most of that last night?

    They really need to be publicly shamed and criticized to prevent others from doing the same thing. Because if all everyone takes from this is hugs and smiles and "well just thank god they're okay", the next major storm to hit the US we'll have chasers trying to ride out a cat 4 on a barrier island in order to get the best shot since nothing physically nor legally happened to them miraculously due to their complete ignorance of basic chaser safety.

    How do "professionals" underestimate the surge of a cat 4 hurricane in the gulf? It's not like they were inland near a bay and the bay rose higher than expected, this was right along an unprotected shoreline prior to a cat 4. Underestimating the surge in that location is like standing on the rim of a volcano before it erupts...

    I'm not a "professional storm chaser" like Brett and his team, but it also looks like if they had bothered to pull up google maps for 2 minutes prior to chasing a cat 4 hurricane, they would have noticed that area was a low lying island with one main road that would no doubt see a major surge on close miss let alone a direct hit. But maybe that is just expecting too much from these "professionals".

    That was certainly the case this summer. Front after front either washed out or would stall as it reached us so there was really no real cool summer days this year. This definitely ties into the lack of severe thunderstorms as well. The best thunderstorm of summer was last week...

    Home Weather Station Desktop Software??

    Hey Paul, how much are you looking to spend? I've been researching software/hardware the last few months and may be able to give you a suggestion. I decided last March that I was going to finally get rid of my first really basic digital weather station that I got in high school(over 10 years ago, yikes) and get a professional-esque system as a birthday gift to myself.

    Really feels awesome outside this morning with the low dews and wind gusts. I always love the first real strong cold front of fall... especially after the unbearable heat and humidity. Finished with 1.31" last night but it really seemed like more. It seemed like from 10 - 2 was relentless heavy rain...I thought for sure we had gotten over 2" at least.

    Replying here because this clowns stupidness shouldn't murk up the main thread I can't blame him at all, and honestly give him mad props for not completely tearing into Brett in that interview. Can't say I would of held my tongue if that was my home this clown broke into and likely ruined the storm preparations that I had spent time on all because he had to have the best footage, safety be damned... It would be hilarious if he pressed charges on him and I really hope he does.

    It really needs to be said that this Brett dudes actions have made him look like a total selfish azzhole in so many ways. He doesn't deserve anything to happen to him but I really hope he takes a long hard look at himself and his "career" if he manages to escape this.

    guess we're going to find out just how safe it is to ride out a high end cat 4 in Mexico Beach since that one chaser is trapped there I believe after trying to go to PSJ. Footage should be great though, hopefully the stream doesn't die before him...

    Yup. It's the equivalent of running into a burning building on purpose. My only worry is for the first responders that may have to put their lives in danger in order to save those morons that have no regard for their own.

    Thank you and the other mods for doing your best.. Just to be clear my post above wasn't a remark on the job you all are doing, I understand it is impossible to keep up with the amount of crap.

    I'm not a mod either or trust me I would along with about 25% of the posts in the thread I didn't mean to single you out but the banter in the main thread is unbearable and posts like that just add to it. I know you are not the problem.
