    Hi all,

    Have compiled some of the best clips of our 37 days of chasing in a 2-part video, here is part one which incorporates chases 1 and 2:

    As promised, Part II of the stormchase - which mainly covers the 3rd chase, and probably the best of the part of the 37 days for action IMO, particularly when we had a very close shave with a tornado in Nebraska!

    Have discovered tonight more video that maybe worth showing in clips, so perhaps maybe do a part 3!

    Thanks for the comments, feel a sense of guilt that you weren't there John, the strong winds we experienced were a little frightening to say the least.

    In 2007, my first chase, I never experienced the large hail and extreme RFD winds that we encountered this year - especially towards the end of the chase.

    Paul S or anyone. Is there still a storm chasing programme on ITV coming out this year, with 2008 footage of your near miss? Do you know when it will be?

    Hi

    Yes I am eagerly awaiting this and will find out the Release Date, all I know is it will air on ITV1 In the Spring, I think Chris is still Filming the last bit on Norwegian Blizzards as we speak (Lucky Guy) It really will be worth the wait as some of the footage will be the best you have ever seen, Even the Forest Fire Episode is going to be Spectacular, remember it is called "Storm Riders"

    Will drop Chris a Message on Facebook and find out if he knows a release date.

    I love you're count down timer mate.

    Cheers, i was trying to embed the timer in the Sig for Paul but the security on the forum wont allow me to run Java Script. Thought I had taken it off cause its a bit on the basic side. Might jaz it up a little.

    Just Spoken to the Producers of the Upcoming ITV Show and a Slight Change of Name for the Programme.

    This is now to be "Natures Fury" Instead of "Storm Riders"

    Still on Schedule for Late June or Early July.
