7/14/2014 Minneapolis, MN Cold Temps B-Roll


Unseasonably cold weather blankets the midwest today with lunch time temps in the Twin Cities only in the Upper 50s with highs in the lower 60s for the day.  It feels more like an Early October day then the middle of July.

6/18/2014 Tornado that tracked from Alpena, SD to just southwest of Huron, SD

Today was one of those days you live for as a chasers.  I was able to make it out to South Dakota to chase today and got on the tornado that formed near Alpena, SD and tracked all the way up to just southwest of Huron, SD.

From what I can tell, the torando did not hit any towns or homes, just farm fields and tree's.  As a chaser, this is the perfect tornado because they form over an area that does very little impact to personal property.  The worst damage I saw was roofing shingles torn off and powerlines down. 

Ahhhhh life...

I know I said I was going to update my blog a lot more then I have, yeah well, been busy with work and putting all my energy and time towards StormChaingVideo.com the facebook pages, the social media sites, the other stuff and life. 

I'm going to be working on a site overhaul this summer with more stock photos and video stuff.  Until then, I'll try to get more updates about what I have been up to.

Saturday I was woken up with the calls about thunderstorms and flooding.  Yes, it has been flooding a bit here in Central Minnesota. 

45 hours in a SUV to drive across the country and it was all live streamed

Ok just getting caught up on the personal blog about what has been happening in the last month.  Winter is finally over but I think we will have one more major winter storm in northern Minnesota before the end of this month. 

Ben and I survived the road trip across the country and we set the record for being the first to live stream across the United States of America and to live stream across the USA on Youtube Live.  It took 45 hours from Time Square in NYC with non stop driving to Venice Beach Pier in California.
