The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.

Do you know that God controls the clouds and makes his lightning flash?

It's gonna happen... Dewdrop is fixin' to fly...

And I'm not talking about skydiving...

I happened upon an opportunity to apply for a storm chase with the Twister Sisters in the plains for a reality TV series they are producing. They were asking for couples to apply for an all-expense paid storm chasing expedition. I thought... what the hay? I can apply. I was so doubtful that I'd get it, that I didn't even tell Hubby... that is until the producer of the show contacted me asking for pictures of hubby and me (while I was in Vegas). I figured that the worst that could happen would be nothing, right...? Well, the worst did not happen. I just got official notice today that from June 3-9th, Hubby and I will be chasing in the plains, all expenses paid, with the Twister Sisters, for a reality show. This is the opportunity of a lifetime! This is what all my knowledge and training has been working toward. All along, I've thought... hey, I'll get some experience here, save up and join an experienced team next year in the plains. I never, in my wildest dreams, thought that I would be given this fabulous opportunity that I am totally STOKED about!!! Yes, folks, I'm fixin' to fly!!! Yes, HB, fixin'!

I will not publish any negative comments about this awesome once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I will not allow anyone to rob me of the energy I feel right now, so please if you don't have anything nice to say... well, you know the rest.

I will update with details as I know them. For now, I am here doing my Happy-Dew-Dance!!!

  2. Congrats Dew! The Twister Siters are come cool chaser gals to hang out with on the Plains... Now all you need to do is hope for a kick butt pattern for early June.

    Start watch the models in a few weeks. I'll likely be out there about that time as well.

  3. Question? Who would post anything negative? You make it sound like some one is giving you issues.

    Your chasing for free... scr&%w them!

  4. I know I am psyched!!! I sure hope the set up falls into place for me. I'm ready to do this thing.

    As for your question, who knows who would say anything negative if anyone... I just don't want any negativity. I'm chasing for free... cause I'm cool like that!!!

  8. CONGRATS DEW!! WOOT WOOT!! Man, that is SUPER cool! And to think that I'm rubbing shoulders with somebody soon to be famous. ;-) I'll be sure to stay far far away from ya'll so you can see some tornadoes. :-)

    As far as the negative comments, I hate to say it, but you can expect some from the "stormchaser police". If you do get any flak about it, I'm here to help. Email me directly and we'll chat some more. :-)

  9. I am psyched!!! Yes, stay far, far away, Steve. I'll be getting with you on the stormchaser police issue. I could use any and all advice I can get.
