Maybe I'm overly annoyed with Public Safety wannabes in Amateur Radio. They ultimately hurt the image of that particular hobby, so I was on a hair-trigger to dislike anything that outfitted someone in a non-Public Safety group with a badge-looking device.

A number of us call the doofuses that put lightbars on their vehicles and what-not in Ham Radio, "Wackers". And their cars, "Wackermobiles".

Not trying to change the topic, just explaining where I was coming from...

No worries.

I really hope you don't confuse those with storm chasers, cause a lot of the storm chasers do that for safety reasons, and I go out and chase with them when I can. Bat

*Some* of the storm chasers are dingbats too. I used to chase. I never needed flashy strobes on my vehicle. Many of them completely overdo it as marketing material as well as cover the vehicles with wraps or signs for their sales.

Back when I did it, it wasn't popular, there were no TV shows about it, and there certainly wasn't mobile data or semi-live radar displays in the vehicle with you. You had to LOOK and know what you were looking at.

One set of wig-wag slim rear window amber LED lights is plenty for "safety" plus standard hazards. If you need more than that, you parked in an unsafe place on a public motorway and in my not-so-humble opinion, the next State Trooper to come along should ticket ya and tell you to move on.

That said, with no radar back then, one day I put myself right where I should not have been and didn't stay ahead of the game on a dirt road with no south exits/other roads for miles. My insurance adjuster wanted to know where I got all the nice hail dimples from... Ha. I still managed to report that the storm was hailing out while still building (rare, it was a line of cells and confused behavior abounded which is what caused me to let my guard down right when it should have been highest) and it tossed an F2 out not very far behind me. I couldn't hear myself think. I couldn't tell if NWS received my radio report either. Just transmitted it blind, repeated it once and paid attention to driving in the inch of hailballs on the dirt road ahead after that.

That was a lesson learned not to always have an out, and it served me well for many years after and also in the airplane...

Call me a curmudgeon, but the modern storm chasers aren't always doing it for a "serve the public" altruistic reason anymore. TV stations pay pretty well for a few seconds of video. The popularity of chasing took off around the time I stopped. Too many chasers these days around some storms.

Sorry, this is way OT for this board, but you hit upon something I've done in the past and have a few opinions about. ;)

I chase for fun and to capture those awesome moments on camera. If someone wants lightbars, eh be my guest, dont bother me any. Storm chasing is definitely a growing trend. Most are out for the thrill or to make money off their footage. I do it for the thrill and to capture the moment. Only seen one though. :( hope to change that later this spring and early summer

Good luck. The cycle goes in about seven to eight year runs, and in a peak year anywhere along the highway to Prospect Valley or alternatively anywhere past Brighton out I-76 is an almost guaranteed sighting.

Little harder in quiet years. I forget if you want an El Niño or La Niña year...

It's fun to finally spot some.

Watch the temperature/dewpoint spreads and if you see forecasts of instability mixed with a dry line out East of Denver or Colorado Springs, those are best. Things really pop when that happens.

Be careful if you ever go hunting in other States. Most of ours are high-based and not embedded in the thunderstorm that produced them, so they're visible.

Being snuck up on by one inside a low visibility torrential downpour is an "I think I may need to have the car seat surgically removed from my ass" event. :)

I will be heading down into ok/tx where the big boys play and the monster ef4 and ef5s are usually found. Thats where the fun is.

Although im still shocked that monster (ef4 or 5?) that tore up Windsor a few years back happened. Never expected that in Colorado.

Actually you want the transition phase between the el nino to la nina cycle, and then again at the beginning of el nino.

I like the idea and color scheme of the first design. Maybe bring those colors in the second design and see how it looks. Something missing on the second one but can't put my finger on what? Great job on both though, Thanks!

My 2 cents, I like the first design better than the second. Although with both designs, using the "shield" motif I think comes across as authoritarian. Maybe I'm reading too much into it, but something like a big mountain or the eagle instead of the shield being the prominent logo would be better and better represent Colorado as whole, in my humble opinion. I'd rather look at the logo and think freedom than be reminded of the crazy laws trying to be passed. Hope I made sense.

Edit: BTW the art and talent with all the logos presented is amazing. I don't want to detract from the talent!! That's talent!

Sorry for the late reply. I have been finishing up classes and making preparations to move. Got a place in Lakewood and a roommate all locked down. Ill be in Colorado on the 16th of May for good.

I will also be able to devote more time to the site and graphics.
