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.
Where the hell is my Global Warming?
It's five in the morning and I'm up early because I have to bring Gustav to the vet this morning. When I looked at the weather outside here in St. Cloud, all I could say is WTF.
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
Last night Neva told me that I have not updated my blog in a while. Wow, been a few weeks but hey, I've been pretty busy here with the holidays and the weather.
Here is the short version of what I have been up to. Winter storm after winter storm, new business stuff, Christmas, working on stock footage stuff, more winter storms and more editing.
Here are some screen caps of what I have been shooting. The first three are from this morning and the rest are from a week ago.
The first image is a video still of some footage that I have been trying to get for a while.
I'm back home after almost a 24 hour blizzard video gig.
From St. Clood to Fergus Falls, then back to Saint Cloud then to Minneapolis and then back home to Saint Cloud. Ugh, I'm home and going to bed now. I did get a chance to shoot some sweet HD footage for the station.
Today's high temp will be a sub zero of -3 to -5 in the Saint Cloud area. The outside air temp when I got home this morning was -13F per my Jeep.
Ok, it's very late and I need to get some sleep and veg out after all the chasing today.
Here is the link to the video I shot for the station.
Chasing with Bill Doms right now. We are in the middle of this mess. The roads are bad!!
BULLETIN - EAS ACTIVATION REQUESTED
CIVIL EMERGENCY MESSAGE
MINNESOTA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION
RELAYED BY NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GRAND FORKS ND
1038 AM CST SUN DEC 14 2008
THE FOLLOWING MESSAGE IS TRANSMITTED AT THE REQUEST OF THE
MINNESOTA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION.
Right now I'm gearing up to head out with two locations in mind. Up north towards Fargo North Dakota or over towards Duluth Minnesota for the major Blizzard hitting the area. I have a ton of work to still catch up on and I really don't want to go and spend 3 days chasing a blizzard by getting stuck someplace far from home.
In North Dakota right now the state has issued the following warning:
More proof of Global Cooling! No, not GLOBAL WARMING, but COOLING.
First there was the sun with no sun spots.
Now, there is a WINTER STORM WARNING, but not for Minnesota, for NEW ORLEANS.
No, this is not a joke. There is a WINTER STORM WARNING for the Big Easy along the Gulf Coast of the United States.
Just a quick update. I've been very busy this past week on a new project that I got for another TV show. I've been working non stop to put together all of this years footage into catalogs along with the best of the best stuff from years past and trying to do about a months work in about a week for the demo tapes.
I wonder, just how many people have actually read this? I bet you in this day and age, not many since it is not in a video game or cartoon.
