GIANT DUST STORM WITH LIGHTNING
AND THUNDER - >>>
Chased storms in the Great Plains of the U.S.A. from
mid-May to early July, almost 2 months. Saw several
tornadoes. Supercells. Horseshoe vortices. Dust Devils.
Dust storms. A Haboob. Hurricane-force winds.
Lightning. Hail. All kinds of storms and weather. Played
a lot of violin. Played violin in windy conditions.
Played violin in Monument Valley, in Antelope Canyon, at
the VLA, in front of a horse, in front of Old Faithful
geysir , at White Sands and Devil's Tower and in
Moscow KS and many other places. But failed to play
violin in front of a tornado. The tornadoes I saw either
had too much rain/hail/lightning for me to safely step
out of the car without risking to damage my violin. Or
the tornado was rainwrapped and not visible, or at
night. Or the storms were moving too fast . Or there was
too much traffic. Or the tornado-warned storm did not
produce a tornado despite obvious strong visible
rotation.Or the storm went outflow dominant before a
tornado could form. Or the police closed the road
that was leading to the tornado. Or I was chasing
with the wrong people who chose a wrong target. Or
I stopped chasing to help friends with flat tires or
stuck in mud. Or I chose not to corepunch that huge hail
because I respected my rental car too much . Or I
decided to not go after that storm because it was too
far from that landmark I wanted to film a storm at. So
many reasons .

bottom line : it ain't easy to play
violin in front of a tornado.
And when it gets really windy, that violin bow either
flies away and you can't hold it steady on the
or it presses too strongly on the strings,
depending on what side of the wind you're at.
nobody said it would be easy...
violin museum is to open in Cremona on September
14. I plan to be there.
also, I have
shot tons of FHD 1080p video in Tornado Alley
and will now need a few months to edit a full
movie. This will keep me busy for some time.

I can still try. The U.S. is not the
only place for tornadoes. Summer and
fall can bring a lot of storms in Italy
and often with rotating updrafts or
supercells or mesocyclones ... Tornadoes
, waterspouts, tornadic waterspouts and
landspouts happen occasionnally in and
around Italy. I have personnally seen
several tornadoes and waterspouts in
Italy. And in the heartland of the
italian tornado alley lies the City of
Cremona in Italy..... Cremona is the
world's headquarter for violinmakers.
Amati, Stradivari, Guarneri lived
here. Maybe northern Italy is where I
will succeed in playing violin in front
of a tornado ? I'll give it a
and Violins. It has to be Italy ! ;-)
spring 2014 I'll probably chase in
Tornado Alley USA again. But
for now, let's head for Italy whenever we can. I live in
the swiss Alps and have to work occasionnally to pay the
bills, but whenever possible in the next couple of
months I will pursue my challenge :
Fiddle in front of a twister.
Stay tuned. Hang on. It's gonna get windy !
