Tony Laubach's Storm Chasing Blog

7NEWS Storm Chaser

Tony is a raised Ohio kid who calls the small town of Circleville his old stomping grounds. After 13 years in the Buckeye State, Tony and his family moved to Colorado where he currently resides as a Meteorology/Technical Communications student at Metro State College in Denver. Tony's weather interest has been a life-long passion as anyone who's ever known him will say, but his storm chasing interest was spurred by the 1991 Andover, Kansas tornado and kicked off with his first tornado in Clarksburg, Ohio in 1997. Tony officially began chasing in 2000 and hasn't stopped since, logging thousands of miles each year in pursuit of the worst Nature can bring.

Tony chases for a variety of reasons. His love of the road combined with weather merged into the perfect hobby where we was later able to add other interests in the digital media field where his second major lies. Tony is one of the casual chasers; enjoying the long drives across the country and having fun in all sides of the chase. When he writes his chase logs or edits a highlight video, half of his footage is the weather he encounters, the other half is behind-the-scenes stuff of him, his friends, and the good times that are some of the best parts of storm chasing that isn't actually weather-related. His legacy among the weather weenies is his faith to his football team, the Washington Redskins, and sporting Art Monk's number, 81, is his good luck charm while roaming the Plains.

Tony keeps a collection of his weather and chasing stories, pics, and videos on his website. You can check out his stuff here ! Don't forget to get the latest on his storm chasing or his weather experiences on his Storm Chasing Blog .
