Well that sucked.

Well, I would not call it a total bust.

Ended up at the same Shell gas station with Bill, Eric, Mel, David, Tony, and some new chasers that asked it they could tag along too.

For hours and hours this morning I reviewed data, looked at the ruc, reviewed even more data and picked two targets. One near Albert Lea to Owatanna MN and the other near Hastings MN.

Since Hastings MN is on the Mississippi River and the target area would be in Wisconsin, I said, eh, NO.

So I went with the southern option.

mad crazy editing.

As the project comes down to the wire, I'm doing some mad crazy editing to get it finished up by Tuesday.
 
Tonight's project, Fit 3 hours and 49 minutes of video in to 35 minutes of space and make one hell of a story.
 
If anyone wants to see the project rough edits, let me know and I will send you the link. This is a limited editing proofing thing to get feedback on the project from you the viewer.
 
You must have high speed internet since this is over a gig in stuff to download.

SDS vs SDDS and get real people, GFS, GUESS Forecast Service.

Ok a lot of people in storm chasing have been bitching about SDS or Storm Deprivation Syndrome... Sorry, I don't have SDS, and far from it. Winter is a time to work on other projects and get stuff in order for the next chase season so you don't go crazy waiting for the next storm. I have just spent several hundred hours editing video, researching video, researching storm data, researching radar data and working my ass off doing voice overs that after 1500 takes, my voice sounds like shit.
