It's a shame how immaturity shows its face through the internet more so than it does in person. The drama throughout the chasing community is absolutely disgusting. Most thought that the drama was topped this season with all of the hate surrounding the mass chaser convergence, but that apparently isn't the case. Since when is it right to mock another human being's death, especially a fellow friend's? I may be a mere 17 year old, but even I know that a line that should never even be looked at has been crossed. I am appauled.
Welcome to the Upslope Chaos blog. I am an 18 year old studying Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Kansas. However, I am planning on attending the University of Oklahoma starting fall 2012. Obviously, my passion in this world is derived from the wonders of supercells and their related tornadoes along with my unquenchable yearning for understanding of the meteorological processes which lead to both. My future aspirations include being an in-field researcher and a potential professor at a renowned university. I'm doing everything in my power to accomplish this from receiving a 4.0 my first semester of college to involving myself in various meteorology based programs.
The purpose of this blog is to not only enhance my understanding of severe weather from forecasts, observations, and reflections, but to also help other youthful and elderly meteorologists alike achieve the understanding that they too desire. -Ben Toms
