Wrap of a busy week.

It's Friday evening and Neva and I are relaxing at home after a busy week of winter weather.

This week we got hit by a couple of snow storms with one being huge yesterday.  The storm was a winner for shooting B-roll and for stock footage.  I have uploaded a video of the two ENG video packages that I shot yesterday.   

update on stuff and stuff

Ok, It's been over a week since I updated my blog but that's because I was pretty busy. 
Where do I start?  Ok went to Denver for the Storm Chase Convention.  It was ok but I'm so sick of hearing about the same forecasting stuff for the last 5 years.  There needs to be more time for mixing and meeting people.  That was what the whole thing was about when it started, hanging out and meeting friends and making new friends. 

Update on stuff and todays severe weather event.

Ok, just an update with stuff and why I have been off the grid so to speak.  I have been reviewing the huge amount of archive footage that we have and reviewing a ton of footage lately for the new web site. To give you an idea about how much video were talking about, it is in the three terabyte range.  It's a lot of stuff...

So Cold Out, It Hurts To Breathe

-36F on the air temp readout

Ok, this morning I wanted to get into one of the coldest spots I could find and I did it just down the road from the St. Cloud Minnesota Airport while heading into Minneapolis to shoot some early morning cold weather footage.   When I got out to experience the -36F temps, it was a shock to the system and hurt to breathe the air since it was so cold if you were not expecting it. 

Where Is My Global Warming? -24F Temps yesterday may have busted a water main today.

Ok, for the record, the global warming thing is a farking scam in my opinion.  Yes we should be clean and not pollute the water and air but we are already doing all that so shut the hell up with the global warming stuff because it is hella cold outside.  The Uncle Al Gore crap has got to stop because this winter has been just brutal with the winter weather slamming into the United States. 

01/01/2009 On It And In It - Happy New Year

Happy New Year.

Just getting caught up with the massive amount of work here at home before the next winter storm hits this weekend.  New Years day was a busy one for me as I finally got to go back and document the annual "On It & In It" polar plunge event at Lake Minnetonka.  This is where they cut a big hole in the ice that is over a foot thick and people pay to jump into the four foot deep freezing cold water for charity. 

Here is the link to the video that we shot
