Welcome to the personal blog, photo and video gallery website home page for Douglas "Lightningboy" Kiesling, The Weather Paparazzi.

Whats happening?

Some might have noticed that the site has been up and down lately.  Simple answer, I'm working on migrating the site from a shared hosting account to our own servers for SCV.  We recently upgraded our setup for this spring and we have a killer system ready to go. 

The down side, older version of the OS vs the new more secure setup and databases are a little different so transferring databases is not that simple.  I hope to have this site up and running by Monday.
