9/5/2015 Big Lake, MN Vivid Lightning Footage

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.

8/6/2015 Hawick MN Tornadoes Touching Down Blog

Another great chase day where we saw 5 different tornado touch downs from the same location just south of Hawick, MN.  Not bad for someone that does not chase anymore according to others that think you have to chase all the garbage to be a real chaser when forecasting is the key to not wasting your time.  I think I earned a glass of the 18 year old The Macallan, that I'm sipping on now.  

7/12/2015 Central Minnesota Tornado & Lightning B-Roll.

Today was one of those great chase days where everything line's up and falls into place.  Upon seeing the first storm fire and a lot of people get what I will call "Suckered" into chasing them up past Fergus Falls in the hills and trees when the second storm I was targeting near Wheaton, MN fired up.  I talked to Amanda and Nick who were already in place up there for the cell that was firing and I just hanged back to cover the south side in case the southern cells on the South Dakota boarder fired up.
