In November of 2009 a dear friend of mine suggested I produce a weather blog. She told me, “Tim, you’re passion for the weather needs an outlet”. Six and a half years later I have taken a hobby (Meteorology) that I have always been fascinated with and thanks to you my website has grown a lot further than I had ever imagined.
What drives my passion for the weather? It all started in central Florida when a rotating super cell approached Orlando on a hot summer day. Nearly a half-foot of hail accumulated during that time and the storm caused hundreds of millions of dollars in damage. In parts of Metro Orlando, hail was reported as large as oranges. Fast forward to today and while I still love a good thunderstorm, nothing fascinates me more than a classic Nor’easter (in case you didn’t already know).
“Vorticity” is the absolute best storm chasing video I have ever seen by Mike Olbinski , check it out… the music is synced up with the time-lapse loops (stunning production)!
I recently upgraded my website (hosted by WordPress) that allows the content that I post to be viewed (proportionately) in smart phones and tablets. This upgrade was purchased by me several days ago.
DCstorms.com costs money to maintain. I have chosen not to allow ads because I don’t want a cluttered looking website. Since I pocket the expense, you can help me out by spreading the word of my website to everyone you know.
If you ever have a question about the weather for me, please don’t hesitate to drop me a line.
Again thank you for sharing my website with your friends, family and co-workers. It is through our shared passion for Weather that makes me continue to want post weather updates on this site that focus in great detail on weather impacting the Washington D.C. region, which I have never been prouder to call my home for almost 21 years.
