storm gallery: 2000

Here's a record of my experiences in the 2000 chase season. You'll find links here to spring reports from Tornado Alley and images of lightning storms and more across Florida.

April 15-16: Storms and lightning spark the skies over the Space Coast in Florida

May 9-11: The Plains chase begins, and a beast of a storm produces damaging tornadoes in Iowa

May 12-13: Mushy storms in Illinois are heavy with warnings and hot with lightning; plus an eerie sunset

May 16: A storm in eastern Wyoming produces picturesque funnels and a quick tornado

May 17-24: A smorgasbord of storms, including a beautiful little bomb in Arkansas

May 25-27: Panhandle lightning, a shear funnel, and an amazing white funnel in Texas that really wanted to be a tornado

May 29-June 2: A gorgeous, weird storm in Nebraska and a dust storm that blew away a greenhouse in Goodland, Kansas

June 24-July 29: Spectacular lightning storms and gust fronts sweep through Florida (plus a short movie of a dangerously close bolt)

August 5-20: An ocean rainbow and a trip to the Florida Keys for a waterspout and glorious skies

August 25: A night of brilliant lightning in three different locations

August 26: A chase across Florida, from Vero Beach to Sarasota, through lots of hot bolts

September 4-26: Nifty lightning and a chase of marginal Hurricane Gordon
