August 12th-22nd, 2004 Florida Waterspouts & Hurricane Charley

August took me for the first time to the Florida Keys waterspout chasing. As we arrived, Hurricane Charley intensified and we decided to chased it. After encountering 90 mph winds, we left and headed out of harms way. During our week in the Keys we saw several funnels and a waterspout. Next year we will go back!! It was a blast!!!!!

August 9th, 2004 Agate, Colorado Tornadic Beast

August 9th took me and everyone in Colorado by surprise. A strong supercell developed near Agate, east of Denver and tracked slowly southwest over the Palmer Divide. This storm was a prolific hail producer (softballs!) and produced numerous tornadoes. I lost my windshield, headlight, wipers, sat dome and a few other things. It was worth it to me.
