I'm Shalena! Phoenix, Arizona born, Florida raised! I'm no meteorologist.. just a young weather-geek! - I was raised by a weather-obsessed mother and family. I love observing all kinds of weather but my favorite kind are severe thunderstorms and of course, I have an obsession with tornadic ones. I had my first tornado at 6 yrs old, in OK 1996, the same year Twister came out!
