Here is something new that we are starting up with StormChasingVideo.com Were starting up a new video blog talking about our videos and we discuss more of what happened in them. The first one is from last week's lightning video from Saint Cloud, MN and the "Phantom Bolt" that showed up.
Many year's ago, I was inspired by watching Stanley Kubricks work with tearing apart what was the status quo in cinematography and his use of insane idea's and camera mods to get the shot he wanted. The video below is a little sample of what I'm talking about.
Tonight was fun!!! A non severe high based thunderstorm moved through the Saint Cloud, MN area this evening with some ridiculously intense amount of lightning.
Trying to figure out a name for this style of lightning. It was very intense and shot in real time.
Woke up really early and could not sleep, looked at the radar and said, oh snap, game on. I missed the first line of storms because I was too lazy to get out of the house but I did get on the southern edge just before sunrise. Wow a thunderstorm with vivid lightning moved across area of Big Lake, Minnesota. While not severe, it did produced a lot of dangerous cloud to ground lightning strikes.
I finally got around to working on the compilation edit of all the ridiculous Car Crashes and Winter Weather "Slip and Slide".
And now for the next big adventure in our lives. Come Valentines Day 2016, we are adding a new member to our family.
Yeah, I have already heard all the jokes from my friends about now they know why I was not out chasing all the garbage storms in May and stayed home to do something else. Well yeah!!!
Severe storms impacted central Minnesota last night and early this morning with large hail and vivid lightning. It was another great opportunity for a local chase.
