Last week, the devastating power and ferocity of the super typhoon Vicente reminded me of an article I wrote back in 2007. I interviewed a couple of passionate storm chasers who got their adrenaline rush from witnessing and documenting extreme weather conditions. It took me a few years to finally agree with them. Sitting at home watching the storm evolve into the first No.10 signal in 13 years was truly an exciting experience. Of course I would have felt differently if I had to rush back to the office in the chaotic crowds after it's all over the next day.
