I have always been fascinated with the weather and photography since I was a young child. Weather Underground gives me the opportunity to experience both of my hobbies simultaneously. I run my own weather station, which updates my web page every 5 minutes and uploads data to Weather Underground and MesoWest every 10 minutes. I am also a trained Storm Spotter for the National Weather Service in central Illinois. My love, fascination and respect for the weather and nature has brought me here. I thoroughly enjoy each and everyone's photos. Thanks for sharing them! Create your own visitor map!
