Hello, and thanks for stopping by!
This is our first blog entry on TVN, I just love this site!
W.O.L.F. Is a storm chasing organization based out of Sweetwater Texas (though our main office is in Roscoe). We are about 8 members strong at the moment, but we are always looking for more chasers! We were formed in July of 2008 but we have been chasing for several years now, just not with a name...
We started our website (wolfweather.org) in February of 2009 and joined the TVN iMap Tracker Network in April of 2009. We stream under the name "wolf1" and we stream every chance we can. Interenet signal in this area of Texas is very limited, but we try our best to bring you live video.
We have recently been on two local TV stations, KTAB and KRBC out of Abilene TX. We were on a chase on June 8th in Jones county TX and were interviewed while a wall cloud was developing. Needless to say we didnt get to have the greatest or longest interview becuase of the weather situation, but I think what time we did get did help us and TVN get noticed. We were asked what we do when we see severe weather and I told them that we report all severe weather to the NWS (when we can). Some "spotters" in our area do not like us because we refuse to join SKYWARN, not to say that SKYWARN is bad thing, but we just don't feel that we would be benifited from joining them.
If you have any questions for us, please feel free to leave us a comment on the "wall", send a private message, or go to our website and send a message.
Thanks and have a great day!
