Matt and Betsy's Storm/Coaster Homepage

We are Matt Crowther and Betsy Abrams, Senior Meteorologists at The Weather Channel. We have been storm chasing in the Great Plains since 1990, and have also chased hurricanes including Elena, Opal and Erin. One of our  other passions is roller coasters and amusement parks, and we are long-time members of ACE, the American Coaster Enthusiasts.

This web page will be a simple place to view some images and occasional news of these two hobbies, and other miscellaneous fun stuff. Enjoy!
