Taking needed time off.

10/14/2004, Taking some much needed and doctor ordered time off to relax and work on some personal projects, not work.

With all the running around it caught up to me yesterday during the morning. So for the next few days, I'm going to be relaxing and kicking back on the couch and doing nothing... per doctors orders.  

Working too hard today.

10/04/2004 It's 4:30 am in the morning, the temp in my Jeep says its 38F outside and I just got done shooting my first video package of the morning for The Weather Channel.

Yes playing cold weather Videographer this morning and to think that just 8 days ago I was just finishing up my Hurricane Jeanne video shoot in Fort Pierce Florida and it was in the 80s there.

Trying to catch up with tons of work.

10/01/2004 I'm really backed up on getting all the stock video footage out to clients and I had a full day of video shooting for The Weather Channel. Work started at 4:45 AM then  8:00 AM and another at 2:00 PM for the shoots of the weather going from bad to just crappy cold rain.

Only thing left to do now is snow... Yes, I put in a 12 hours video shoot shift and trying to get stuff caught up after all the hurricane chases, I'm getting a little burned out. I need a vacation from my workaholicism self...

Home sweet home.

9/30/2004 Home in Minneapolis, MN and shooting video for The Weather Channel this afternoon of some nice warm weather. Looks like the last warm weather we will have for a while.


09/26/2004 Hurricane Jeanne Video Update

In Orlando Florida Tonight.  I had a VERY Successful Chase and was in Fort Pierce Beach Florida, The Same Place  For Hurricane Frances.

I shot a lot of great footage for our Hurricane Jeanne Video collection. I posted the video the was on The Weather Channel this morning but due to lack of sleep, I'll post the Hurricane Jeanne Photographs when I wake up.   Click here to review the whole Hurricane Jeanne blog.

Here is a short video from my Hurricane Jeanne chase.
