First, thank you for your post and participation here on our little corner of the web.
I don't think you will find a lot of "cheerleading" for storms here, just genuine interest in the processes which cause them to happen. In a similiar manner in which you are taken with plants, I am taken with the processes of the earth's atmosphere, indeed, I have chosen to make them my life's work. Many of those who frequent this board are those who have been affected by storms in the past, and one way to remove the fear of such things is to learn about them and understand them as much as possible. You will find varying degrees of meteorological skill and experience here, from hurricane researchers with advanced degrees to those who just find them interesting. I would ask for your understanding if you choose to frequent this board...it is designed to be more than "where is it going"...designed to be an area where those who are curious about the processes which create and sustain these storms can learn more about them. I think that you will find the level of discussion here higher than most other similiar locations on the net, and I would encourage you to stick around, join in our discussions, and maybe we can learn something from each other in the process!
