Frosty called me down to the basement the yesterday and said
“Hey Pete, I got a really good picture of you at the chase, come check it out.”
When I got downstairs, he gave me the drawing you see above.
“It really captures the way you like to run away from danger.”
And after a solid five minutes of teasing, Frosty told me that I actually did a pretty good job at my first chase. Apparently they’ve had a few interns who jumped on the first available bus home after their first storm experience. Then he told me that since I’ve shown that I can handle myself out in stormy weather, he wants me out taking pictures every chance I can get, and if they’re good enough he’ll put them with his collection and give me a co-credit – how cool is that! I’m trying to convince Frosty to let me post some of his pictures on my blog, but he’s really strange about it. I guess people are willing to pay a lot of money for good storm footage, but only if it’s never been seen before - so I guess that’s why he’s so protective of his work. But I’ll keep bugging him about it, maybe he’ll cave.
