Our Guest: Melanie Metz

Melanie had a passion for storms since she was a young girl living in Arizona. In high school, photography became her other love. She has been on the road with her camera every spring for over 20 years chasing tornadoes.  Melanie was one of a pair of chasers on the WE Network "Twister Sisters" program.  She was a chaser for Fox 9 News in Minneapolis.  Her tornado photo graced the poster for the movie 13 Minutes.  And recently, she has partnered with Girls Who Chase all while winning the 2021 Storm Chaser of the Year award capturing an astonishing 37 tornadoes last year!
