    Good Morning Chris, I love all of the work you put in to your forecasts and how excited you get delivering them, it reminds me of Mark Eubank forecast in the old days. I was wondering if you can look back at radar for severe storms. I had an incident in Nucla, Colorado last Monday evening the 24th around 8:15pm to 8:45pm. There was a Jet engine sound in a thin line of thunderstorms traveling East across Nucla. When it got to where I was working (Northern end of main street) it sounded like the jet was trying to land on me. This caused some considerable damage in the area I was in, I was working on electronic equipment in a cinder block building and when the wind hit I held the door closed while it sucked and then pushed lasting 10 to 15 seconds. I didnt think to look at the radar on my phone at that time but it would be cool to see if there is Radar that would show something. Thanks for all you do.

      Thanks so much for reaching out, Cam! I researched the radar history date/time and will email you.
