Thanks for dropping in! My name is Chris Kridler. I'm a journalist whose work includes articles, photography, video, and the novels Funnel Vision, Tornado Pinball and Zap Bang. I live on the edge of Florida's Lightning Alley, and I love to chase the mighty thunderstorms of the Plains. For more info and credits, see my bio.
