The storm chase community lost one of our own today ... Andy Gabrielson was driving home from a chase in North Central TX when a driver going the wrong way ran head on into his vehicle in Sapulpa, OK. My deepest condolences to his family and friends. :(

You will lay your head on pillows of clouds,
dance with lightning and chase the wind
from one end of the sky to the other ---
the Heavens are your playground now.
You will always be in perfect position and
will never bust ... a chaser's paradise.

RIP, Andy.  You will be missed.

Don't Think Of It As 'Goodbye' ...

We'll see you every time we chase --
there you'll be, sliding down the
branches of a lightning bolt. We'll
hear you laughing in the wind and
rain. And when we're home, safe,
we'll toast the sky in your memory:

this one's for you.

Sorry to hear this. A beautiful write about the realities after we leave here.

Yes, tragic and ironic. Like the man I knew who owned a sporting goods store and was into bow hunting for deer. One morning he left early for deer hunting in his convertible. A deer ran across the road in front of him, he flipped the car over and died.

Storm chasing at high speeds, sometimes with very poor visibility in storms, is a dangerous business. Having someone cross the road and come at you head on is something I've only experienced once. I had no time to think, I just got out of my lane to the left (the wrong way to go) because there was a high bank to my right. That reflex to saved me and my three passengers from a head-on collision at 100 mph at 4 am.

So tragic; too, too young! Beautiful tribute to one of your own ...

(((HUGS))), much love, and prayers~

As always, your twin sister, Karen Lynn. :( +Tears!+
