The fact that we had thunder, lightning, wind and rain from a storm on December 15th is unprecedented where I live in Minnesota which is north of Lake Superior. I have never seen a thunderstorm past October in my entire life and I don’t think I’ve ever seen rain in December before maybe a mix or slushy rain. Possibly a cold rain event like you get in Seattle in early early December, but this was just completely unprecedented.

Thank you Ryan for your work. I’m a truck driver from Arizona who runs, weekly to and from Denver, CO. Your accurate forecast about the high winds that hit there enabled me to get out before the devastation and it saved, not only my business(truck and trailer) but also my life. Thanks again. I’ve shared your channel with a ton of other truckers and will continue to do so. We need reliable, accurate forecasts to avoid trouble out here. Thanks again.

I live in the Kansas City area . The weather was insane today !! It was 74 degrees and super humid. The wind was SO super strong, I could barely walk to my car after work, then once I got to my car, I could not open my car door because of the strength of the wind! It was insane! Driving home.. there was debris blowing all over the streets over the cars on the road🥴. The sky was pitch black except for lighting . At the stop lights my car was shaking SO hard, it felt as if my car was going to blow over! It was so scary. The schools in our district sent messages to the parents that the school buses were not going to be able to do their route home because of the high winds! Finally got home at 5;30 then lost power. The power just came back on At 11:30. I have lived in this area for 30 years & I can say this weather was the Weirdest thing that I have ever experienced, especially in mid December!

I watched your stream on Friday when the tornadoes tore through Kentucky but never expected to be for severe weather up here in Wisconsin in the middle of DECEMBER. The brunt of the storm actually arrived while you took your break near the end. When the most severe part arrived it was raining so hard and the wind was so strong that it somehow squeezed water through a window seal in my house. The power was out for the night and there’s some knocked down trees, fences, and Christmas decorations. Lots of debris in the roads. If this were a summer storm the damage would be much more widespread as the leaves on the trees catch wind. This morning it’s still very gusty with some low clouds. It just feels like the earth is saying it’s not doing well. Thanks for doing what you do!

I'm in Texas and I wish I'd found you sooner! We get crazy weather here every spring and fall, winds and fires when it gets to dry, dust storms, and ice. We need you and you are WAY BETTER then our local guy who says TOOUUUSSSDAAAY and other annoying things and seems way to happy when saying things like "take cover". Lol I mean, it is Abilene and not DFW so less funds but damn. Anyway thank you.

I found Ryan before he hit 100k...his video popped on my feed. So happy for that. I live in East TN. Moved here 6 years ago. I've had my share of earthquakes in CA but the straight line winds are on a completely different level. 🤯🤯🤯
