Dang Facebook, you make it so I don't update my blog...

Happy New Year Everyone.  One of my New Years resolutions is make sure I update my blog on a more timely basis.  It's not my fault, it's that freaking Facebook, it makes it too easy to just update a status and move on. 

So, lets see what I have been up to since I last forgot to update my blog.  Well, not much.  The weather here in Minnesota has been pretty boring, ok, its beyond boring and there has not been much to write about.  Just been working on the behind the scenes stuff and finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel on massive archive project. The YouTube channel now has over 2,000 videos on it.

Other than some test photos I did with the ultra wide camera gear I picked up I have not even picked up the camera gear to shoot anything since there has nothing to photograph of video tape.  We just got the first real snow up in Minnesota this past week and even that was about an inch.  The forecast shows that should melt off this week with temps in the upper 40s this week. 

There is a bright spot to the lack of weather in Minnesota if that means I don't have snow storms to document.  The heating bill will be lower, the number of cars in wrecks are way down this winter, and I'm able to focus at the new office on getting my work done and everything caught up. 

Here is a test image with the new lens the other day.  I can't wait to get out and shoot some Texas sized super cells in the next few months.  The field of view is insane.  Right click on the image to view the larger image.

Oh there is the other thing, BNVN, Breaking News Video Network, Inc.  It was bought out by StormChasingVideo.Com last month.  2012 is going to be a good year.
