I sent my son off on his high school graduation present this weekend-- storm chasing in the Midwest with Silver Lining Tours. The couple on the airplane seated next to him on the way to Denver kept asking, "You're doing what???" He loved explaining it, I'm sure.
It is great to have such a techno-literate son! He audioblogs from the field all day and then uploads summaries and photos when they get to a hotel in the evening. I can watch the progress throughout the week, and I really hope they get to see some tornadic activity! (The constant updates make me worry a bit less.)
