2004 is considered to be one of the high water marks for quality tornadoes in the Great Plains spring seasons. I was blessed to be a full part of this monumental season, witnessing and capturing not only my first tornadoes, but some of the best in known chasing history. 2004 was also my first full year shooting all types of weather footage for TV clients, a part-time job that took me across the country for snow, rain, ice and two hurricanes.
