Fall Lecture Series: Superstorms of Ontario

Join David T. Chapman for a presentation on a wide variety of severe weather including thunderstorms, ice storms, wind storms, snow storms and solar storms all from the beautiful province of Ontario. Enjoy the winter storms from the comfort of your seat and experience the excitement of chasing some of the province's biggest supercell thunderstorms. Watch the graceful beauty of the Aurora Borealis as it dances over the lights of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. See all of this and more in a thrilling visual presentation.

David T. Chapman is self-taught in both storm chasing and the art of photography. He has been pursuing his career professionally since the age of eighteen. He learned at a very young age from his father to appreciate his environment in the surrounding countryside. He enjoys taking photographs and video of weather phenomena, especially lightning, as well as scenery and nature. David likes to seek out unusual examples of nature such as albino robins, ice crystal formations and frozen water droplets. He has found multi-petalled Ontario Trilliums, the highest of which had 33 petals and was found in Grey County, Ontario. David is also a professional speaker and enjoys entertaining and educating a good crowd. His main areas of expertise are Weather/Aurora Borealis, Local Interests and Scenery of Ontario, Birds and Wildlife. David's work has been featured on many networks including The Weather Network, Global, CTV, City TV, CBC Toronto and others. After over 15 years of studying all aspects of weather, David is now involved in researching past tornadic events across our province to fine tune his thunderstorm forecasting. 

This presentation is part of our Fall Lecture Series taking place on Tuesday afternoons in November at 2:30 p.m. in our Theatre. Complimentary refreshments following. Free with admission. Members free as always. Check out the advantages of being a Grey Roots member.
