storm-chasers

One day this past summer Ryan saw the Discovery channel’s reality TV show:  Storm Chasers at Uncle Larry & Aunt Misty’s house.  It was obsession at first sight!  We watched the whole season together as  family.  It was You Tube videos about tornadoes, playing “Storm Chasers”, he checked out EVERY book that our Brighton Library has-twice, our Mom Van became the DOW or the TIV (depending on the day), and Ryan became, Dr. Josh. 

On one of the shows this past season it mentioned that The Center for Severe Weather Research is based in Boulder.  Knowing that storm chasing season is right around the corner, I decided to Google it.  I found Dr. Josh Wurman’s website-(he’s one of the main “characters” on Storm Chasers).  And on his website he has his e-mail.  Then, I get this idea…how cool would it be for the my Dr. Josh to meet the real Dr. Josh.  So I e-mailed him and explained how much Ryan loves the show, and how he calls himself Dr. Josh, plays Storm Chasers, etc and would he be willing to meet us in person?  I received an e-mail that same day and a date was set:  March 13th.  Hopefully a day that Ryan will remember to celebrate his tornado crazy 4th year of life.  And who knows…maybe he’ll be Dr. Ryan Green in charge of his own set of storm chasers some day?!?

  2. That is SO great! We are working at school to link up with a project that involves the same storm chasers! There is an elementary/middle school curriculum that applies REAL science to REAL life! Go Ryan! (I mean, Dr. Josh/Ryan)!
