Justin: “Some people refer to it as ‘upslop’ because it’s messy.” Gabe: “It’s more chaotic and much more limited to what’s happening on a local scale…You don’t know where the best storms are going to be, it’s the proverbial needle in a haystack.”» —“To All You Chasers” by Leora Discovery Channel: Storm Chasers May 21, 2008.
