Welcome to the team! You do bring a unique section to the group and we are happy to have you. Studying at a comm college before going for a full BS is a great way to save some money. I wish I had known that before I started college :).

Grebjack, that is awesome about the shed. I've never been near a tornado, but I do hear the sky does some awesome things.

I am fascinated by tornadoes, too. Actually, I love them, although I'm hesitant to say that in public - my city just lost three people and a LOT of homes and I don't think many people share the appeal. But I love the smell. I love that weird green color. I love the eerie stillness at ground level while the tops of the trees are whipping every which way. I even love how random they are. There was a wind storm once (the weather service said it was just a wind shear) that picked up my uncle's shed and set it down in his neighbor's back yard - no damage to either the shed or the privacy fence between the yards. That just demands respect!

I just discovered this team, and I think I might just fit in, even though I haven't really seen any atmospheric scientists around yet. :)

I'm currently studying at my local community college ($), but next year I hope to be at Mississippi State University where I will get my BS is Meteorology with a minor (double major?) in Physics. From there I hope to go on to University of Alabama at Huntsville to get my MS in Atmospheric Science. With any luck I can get my foot in the door of their research department and just stay there forever.

I want to find out exactly why tornadoes form, and how the environment around them affects them. Why are some weak and some strong? Why do they behave the way they do? I could go on and on all day lol.

I enjoy chasing storms, so I believe research would be the perfect thing for me to do with my life. :)
