Movie so intense, I need to get away from it for a bit,
Into The Storm is the film. About a group of folks including a team of storm chasers ( like Reed Timmer) caught in a series of tornados. Excelent tornado footage and effects. Lacking on character developinment with sterotypic characters. But very engrossing. Wili called it "disaster porn". Maybe so but I love it. But I like that sort of thing.
I've never been much afraid of storms, but haven't been in a tornado. But could see myself being a storm chaser
I experience a Cat 2 hurricane down here.. almost a Cat 3. I will never put myself in the way of something like that on purpose. Maybe when I was younger. It was a Cat 5 in the Gulf.. then crossed the state to arrive in the early morning as a 2. As it covered us and reached the ocean it ramped up to a 3 again.
Hurricane Wilma was the most intense tropical cyclone ever recorded in the Atlantic basin. Part of the record breaking 2005 Atlantic hurricane season, which included three of the six most intense Atlantic hurricanes ever (along with #4 Rita and #6 Katrina), Wilma was the twenty-second storm, thirteenth hurricane, sixth major hurricane, fourth Category 5 hurricane, and second-most destructive hurricane of the 2005 season. A tropical depression formed in the Caribbean Sea near Jamaica on October 15, and intensified into a tropical storm two days later, which was named Wilma. After heading westward as a tropical depression, Wilma turned abruptly southward after becoming a tropical storm. Wilma continued intensifying, and eventually became a hurricane on October 18. Shortly thereafter, extreme intensification occurred, and in only 24 hours, Wilma became a Category 5 hurricane with winds of 185 mph (295 km/h). Intensity slowly leveled off after becoming a Category 5 hurricane, and winds had decreased to 150 mph (240 km/h) before reaching the Yucatán Peninsula on October 20 and 21. After crossing the Yucatán Peninsula, Wilma emerged into the Gulf of Mexico as a Category 2 hurricane. As Wilma began accelerating to the northeast, gradual re-intensification occurred, and the hurricane became a Category 3 hurricane on October 24. Shortly thereafter, Wilma made landfall in Cape Romano, Florida with winds of 120 mph (190 km/h). As Wilma was crossing Florida, it had briefly weakened back to a Category 2 hurricane, but again re-intensified as it reached the Atlantic Ocean. The hurricane intensified into a Category 3 hurricane for the final occasion, but Wilma dropped below that intensity while accelerating northeastward. By October 26, Wilma transitioned into an extratropical cyclone southeast of Nova Scotia. Wilma made several landfalls, with the most destructive effects felt in the Yucatán Peninsula of Mexico, Cuba, and the US state of Florida. At least 62 deaths were reported, and damage is estimated at $29.4 billion (2005 USD, $35.5 billion 2015 USD), $21 billion (2005 USD, $25.4 billion 2015 USD) of which occurred in the United States alone. As a result, Wilma is ranked as the fifth costliest storm in United States history.
"If it turns out that President Barack Obama can make a deal with the most intransigent, hard-line, unreasonable, totalitarian mullahs in the world but not with Republicans? Maybe he’s not the problem."
Granted I would have done it when young, not now after reaching geezer hood .
Never been in a hurricane . Was somewhat near one back in '08 when I was in Austen tx when Ike went through the coast. All we got in Austen were some brisk winds pushing some rain. Not much rain . But wouldn't say I was in the hurricane at all.
Living in Dodge during a storm. Looked out the window to see a perfect shaped tornado heading my way. Put wife and four kids in basement, grabbed my 35mm got in my van and headed toward the tornado to get some shots as it was a few miles away. Found a good spot to shoot got the camera up and focused, and set. Pressed the shutter release. The motor drive whirled about an inch then stopped. AT END OF ROLL.
Bummer. Perfect shaped tornado, perfect spot with good composition no one hurt by tornado, and me with no film.
A fellow photographer in town shot the same storm. He had lessor images but put one on a postcard advertising Dodge City and sold thousands.
