Who is NØXWX?

Hello, We are Michael and Carole Huber, owners of Our Treasured Planet® Photography. We are mostly known for our wildlife and nature photography that we have been doing for many, many years. Howevr, we have decided to join our love of photography with our fascination of extreme weather.

We have been involved with storm spotting and reporting to the National Weather Service for a number of years off and on. We have always been fascinated with severe weather, and interested with weather in general.  We recently decided that we needed to become much more involved in severe weather monitoring and reporting because of the potential it has to help someone survive a major weather event.

Both of us are official Skywarn/CAST spotters for the National Weather Service. We use information gathering equipment such as anenometers, thermometers and barometers during severe weather events in order to relay that ground information, and our field observations, to the NWS if needed. Communicating with the NWS and other spotters for me (Michael) is through the use of several HAM (Amatuer) radios (VHF/UHF frequencies) my vehicle is equipped with. Use of cell phones is sometimes necassary to get the message out, however, more often than not information is relayed via amatuer radio during severe weather outbreaks. My FCC callsign is NØXWX.

Why we do it:

The effects of severe weather are felt every year by many Americans. To obtain critical weather information, NOAA's National Weather Service (NWS), part of the U.S. Department of Commerce, established SKYWARN® with partner organizations. SKYWARN® is a volunteer program. These volunteers help keep their local communities safe by providing timely and accurate reports of severe weather to the National Weather Service.  In the average year, 10,000 severe thunderstorms, 5,000 floods and more than 1,000 tornadoes occur across the United States. These events threatened lives and property. Storm spotters are part of the ranks of citizens who form the Nation's first line of defense against severe weather. There can be no finer reward than to know that their efforts have given communities the precious gift of time--seconds and minutes that can help save lives.

And because of the power, and simply put, awesomeness, that these storms have/are, it's just too much sometimes to believe without experiencing them first hand and sharing that through images with others, so that there is more understanding of not only their beauty, but the potential for destruction that they hold.
