I grew up in Louisiana with a love for t'storms. I still love severe weather though now I'm more interested in learning about them than chasing them.

After spending so long in the plains of California, I've become dissociated from the weather of my home state. I had forgotten how testy and unpredictable the storms can be out here. In Los Angeles, the climate is dominated by the coast and the Santa Ana winds. When disturbances push down from Oregon, they usually hit California as big blobs of rain during the rainy season (or merely as a disturbance during droughts). There, you can see every storm come for miles away. They don't pop up, as the scattered storms do out here. Furthermore, the mixture of dry and moist air across the plains is an important ingredient in the severe weather symphony I love so much.
