This winter's forecast has been confusing...Has it been a challenge for you, especially if the forecast changes like it did?

I'm about to participate in a panel discussion at the National Weather Association Annual Meeting. Do the rewards of storm chasing outweigh the risks. Your thoughts?

I feel the rewards depands on the person. I chase in Pennsylvania for the photography and so i can keep people safe i txt warnings and post them. I am not afraid to go all the way to keep everyone safe. Pennsylvania isnt like Oklahoma and Kansas but chasers are needed everywhere.

@Jesse Volanti I'm with you! I've watched since 1987 and don't have it anymore because of DirectTV. I miss TWC.

Mike, I have the exact same shoes on... awesome!
