Mike Trout chases snowstorms in Arizona (!)

Spring Training began this week, officially, as players from all 30 teams find themselves in either Florida or Arizona.
Mike Trout is currently in Arizona at the Angels' team facility, where he's far away from the type of inclement weather that is making its way around the rest of the country. After all, Arizona is a much warmer -- oh. OH.

That was the scene on Thursday afternoon as he and his wife, Jess, went on a literal storm chase through Arizona, in the same way Bill Paxton and Helen Hunt did in the 1996 film "Twister," only with unexpected Arizonan snow in place of tornadoes or floating cows
Jess documented it on her Instagram story:

Look at that hashtag. #HeThinksHesAMeteorologist.
If that doesn't sum up Trout's intense off-field interest, I don't know what does.
That's one happy dude. 

Congratulations, Mike!
