Discovery Channel "Storm Chasers" DOW Operated by Josh Wurman

Ryan Hoke, who is a teenage weather fanatic just like me, was out storm chasing in Kansas the other day and while he was chasing a storm, the DOW (Doppler on Wheels) came driving by them and was leading the other chase vehicles, the TIV (Tornado Intercept Vehicle) and the Scout truck. Alot of you weather fans may know of the show "Storm Chasers" which airs on the Discovery Channel and also the Science Channel. The DOW was created and now is being operated by scientist/meteorologist Josh Wurman while out in the plains chasing. This storm didn't drop any tornadoes, but if you go to Ryan's blog at http://www.ryanweather.blogspot.com/
you can see some pictures of his 2 week chase trip (which is only 1 week done) and they are some fascinating pictures and I can promise you that more great pictures will be coming.
