After what seemed like a lifetime of overcast sky and above average temps in central Minnesota, we are finally back to real winter sub zero temperatures. Now don't start yelling at me saying you hate the cold. If you hate the cold, leave, move to South Florida. I personally love the cold weather for one simple fact that we don't have any bugs flying around for half the year. I'll put on a coat, hat, and gloves if it means don't have to cover myself in chemicals like Deet.
Ok, so I get a lot of people wondering WTF, where are the updates to your blogs? What are you up to? Where are the new photos and video? Short answer, I'm over worked and doing the work of a two or three people to run my company Stormchasingvideo.com and soon I will have a full time assistant helping me run the company. Check www.StormChasingVideo.com to for the updates. Right now, I'm trying to get this website software up to date with the current versions of the CMS or content management setup software.
Just a quick post, it's been a very busy week with the winter storm that hit the Saint Cloud, MN area. I have been out working in the weather almost every day. Check out www.StormChasingVideo.com for all the latest videos.
Also working on a site upgrade so I have not posted much since I have been busy behind he scenes.
As the season's are changing and the temps are getting colder out.
So this week, I finally did it. I asked Neva to marry me. I had some friend's help out and I put together a cool little video for Neva to show her before asking her.
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.

If you are taking a drive up north this weekend, check out the fall colors along Interstate 94 in Stearns County between Saint Cloud, MN and Avon, MN.
This is the weekend to get out and check out the fall colors that are now at 50% to 75% peak with Saturday and Sunday looking to be the best days to get out and view the show.
I needed to get out of the office today and get back to doing some creative work. I saw that it was the first day of fall so what better excuse then to go out and document the fall colors just northwest of town.
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!
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...
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.
