This has been a sad couple weeks with Wichita chaser Matt Hughes (of Discovery Channel's Storm Chasers show) hospitalized in serious condition, and then passing away this past Wednesday. I am so very sorry for his family's loss.
I haven't known Matt for very long, but it is clear he was a bright and enthusiastic person, with much passion, and also very sensitive.
With the deadly Yazoo City MS and Oklahoma City OK tornadoes this year, and now Matt's death, I hope these events will serve as reminders to weather enthusiasts that there are more important things in life besides storm chasing, and to keep all that in its proper perspective.
Matt, we will remember you fondly...
