10/23/2014 Eclipse

I know I have not blogged a lot in the last month but I have been extremely busy behind the scenes working on new stuff and traveling.

Today we had clear skies and at 5:30 local time tonight, Neva and I were able to go out and watch the eclipse.  In the photo below, we were not the only ones watching it in the Saint Cloud, MN area because to the lower left, there is a Crane flying past the sun.   Click on the image below to see the full size image.

Catch up week at the office

Ok, no trips planned this week and spending the week working on getting a lot of stuff caught up.  Lots of paperwork and receipts to go through, footage to edit, and working on the SCV "Singularity" project. 

Lot's of great stuff in the work's in the next 6 week's!

Busy Week, good to be home.

To say I have been busy this week is a little of an understatement.  First I was covering the flash flooding from what was left of Odile in southeastern Arizona, then I thought going to the airport early was suppose to make it easier with security.  On my way home while waiting at the gate for the flight to show up and go home, I ended up in the middle of a security lock down because the police were looking for murder suspects in Terminal 4.  I was in Terminal 4... 

9/18/2014 Tropical Storm Odile Flash Flooding in Southeast Arizona.

Just doing a recap the chase trip of what was the remains Hurricane Odile that  moved into southeastern Arizona this afternoon and caused flooding in several communities.   Knowing the area after chasing down here a few times now and learning the data holes, I was able to pull a rabit out of the hat and actually get to see the effects of the flooding.

I was also able to get some Infrared photography in at 5000 feet above sea level with the cloud deck right on top of me.

Back in Phoenix, AZ for the next system.

Yes, I headed back to Phoenix, AZ to cover what could be Tropical Storm Odile with the core fo the storm making its US boarder crossing tomorrow. 

Based on the forecast models and experience chasing, this system look's like it will have a major impact on the region and my main concern what the moisture from the Sea of Cortez and Gulf of California will have on it. 

Major flooding drops record rainfall in Phoenix, AZ from Hurricane Norbert.

Wow, today was an insane with the record amount of flooding that hit the Phoenix, AZ area.  After checking out the area south of Phoenix with Ben yesterday and watching some intense dust devils, the storms finally moved into the Phoenix region and all I can say is wow, the forecast was spot on and the rain fall was dramatic.
