So, its been a while since I have updated this page. Been busy and the architect of this page is so out dated from what the vision was to be that I'm working on a major overhaul and archive of this site before I launch the new site that will focus more on the photography and video work, not the story and blogs so much.
Just a little something from this morning after the moon set before the morning civil twilight when the Auroras were dancing in the sky.
I know I said I was going to update my blog a lot more then I have, yeah well, been busy with work and putting all my energy and time towards StormChaingVideo.com the facebook pages, the social media sites, the other stuff and life.
I'm going to be working on a site overhaul this summer with more stock photos and video stuff. Until then, I'll try to get more updates about what I have been up to.
Saturday I was woken up with the calls about thunderstorms and flooding. Yes, it has been flooding a bit here in Central Minnesota.
Ok just getting caught up on the personal blog about what has been happening in the last month. Winter is finally over but I think we will have one more major winter storm in northern Minnesota before the end of this month.
Ben and I survived the road trip across the country and we set the record for being the first to live stream across the United States of America and to live stream across the USA on Youtube Live. It took 45 hours from Time Square in NYC with non stop driving to Venice Beach Pier in California.

I can't believe it has been two month's.
On the last day of February 2014, spring seems as if it is still month's away instead of just week's away as another round of winter weather impacts southern Minnesota.
