November 15, 2010: Can't believe thought for sure I'd have something to post this weekend, after getting our first snow on Friday. But with my luck, as soon as I got off work it stopped snowing. No ops Friday night. A week of anticipation for this snow and nothing from it. Figured I needed something to post instead. Here's a shot from July 27 in Chetek, Wisconsin. Had a nice shelf blow in across the lake accompanied with 50mph winds.



November 7, 2010: Had a pretty cool sunset tonight. It's cool how you can tell way before if it'll have good color or not, almost can prepare for it then. Not that I did here, but driving home I knew it'd be good with all the cirrus and it being totally clear in western Nebraska. Notice the fall colors, which are coming to an end.



November 4, 2010: I love watching old chase videos. Had a lot of exams this week and finally finished them all and just sat down and watched some old Chase video from May 18, and June 20. One particular day I was looking back on was May 18. I chased with my chase partner and good friend Chris Allington. End up getting to this storm in the Oklahoma panhandle and just as it puts down a tornado we magically happen to be on the muddiest road we've ever seen. we're about 5 miles from the tornado and have ultra wide angle lens' on our cameras, and shooting video on the shakiest roller coaster road ever. Terrible footage and the only crappy road of the chase all when the two tornadoes of the day happen. Of course! LOL. Here's a video capture - about the only one I could get that had decent resolution.



As soon as we get on to a better road the tornado is back up lol. You can see the water in the ruts, it was bad bad bad. Later this night we got in some Hail north of Liberal, Kansas. I don't know how I didn't notice how big they were in real life, but looking back at footage we easily had baseballs smashing into the road and exploding. Chris was saying it the whole time too. It's crazy how you take stuff like this for granted, all the cool things we've seen and things we've accomplished together, whether it be chasing tornadoes or just photographing the night sky, waiting for auroras that never happen, or getting up at 2am and "chasing fog". For about half the photos you see on this website I was with either Chris Allington or Mike Hollinshead, two great photographers and my good friends. I'm so thankful to have great friends that I get to share experiences with.

Since there's nothing really going on lately thought I'd add this reflection post, I'll probably do one or two every month through the winter especially if there aren't any winter storms. Hopefully something happens soon though!
