If proposing marriage weren't dramatic enough, a meteorologist asked his boyfriend to marry him as a twister bore down in the distance.
Meteorologist and storm chaser Joey Krastel, 27, proposed to his boyfriend, Chris Scott, in Kansas this week.
"The 2 loves of my life," Krastel wrote in an Instagram post about the momentous occasion.
While many might bristle at the idea of such a romantic occasion occurring in the eye of the storm (as it were), Scott and Krastel bonded over their love of storms, according to NBC News.
Scott, 23, began following Krastel on Instagram, where he often posts pictures of storms. Eventually, Scott messaged Krastel and asked if he actually chases the storms in his pictures. Krastel has chased approximately 70 storms, according to NBC.
Krastel, a risk analyst for the Maryland Emergency Management Agency, witnessed his first tornado at the age of 4, and it influenced him for life.
