TWisted Expectations

Storm Chasing team from the upper Midwest

Welcome to 2020 folks.  We are a group of storm chaser from the Upper Midwest. Our members are Steven Solie, Bill Kranski, Corey Bull, Jayce Simmons, and Chris Tipton.  We also work with Jake Stehli and Michael Solie.  2020  brings some big news as Bill and his girlfriend are expecting a baby girl in late May to early June.  Our team will be out and about in the Midwest to the plains again this season trying to capture and view some of the most violent storms on the planet.  the 2019 season saw some great action on the plains in May, and then after that it slowed down for our region for the most part with a few sightings here and there in the Upper Midwest. On a side note, we did get live on The Weather Channel in May for the first time ever for the Iowa City tornado.  Even got to do a live interview, was very exciting.

2019 Chase Season Recap

2019 Chasing Season is done

This years chase season started off great for our members that went on a chasecation. we saw some very beautiful tornadoes, and we all stayed safe. At the end of the chasecation we even had a member go live on the weather channel with a tornado on the ground in Iowa City, IA. We had an amazing tornado in Nebraska this year where Jake and Bill had an amazing view along with Corey also getting some great footage. This day featured 4 tornadoes in one day. Since the chasecation, things have really slowed down, our region that we chase has been very slow or not working out with work schedules. Steven and Bill saw a tornado in Southern MN but it was just a brief spin up. Other then that mainly a few funnels and some nice storms. We are now nearing the end of the tornado season, may be a few more chances, but for all intensive purposes, we are at the end of the main season. I have also been slacking a bit on the website, but I am going to try and get it caught up, so please bear with me. Hope everyone enjoys the site and don't forget to follow us on our social media pages. Bill
