Welcome to the personal blog, photo and video gallery website home page for Douglas "Lightningboy" Kiesling, The Weather Paparazzi.
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.
Back on line. Not much to really say, lots of stuff going on behind the scenes with work and family but trying to post more on my page instead of Facebook.
Just got done with covering the winter storm here in Saint Cloud. Most of the day the temps were right at freezing so we were dealing with freezing rain more then snow until just about at sunset. Around six at night the snow started to fall and within a few hours, it was over but the damage was done with the underlying freezing rain under the snow.
Here is the video I shot
Winter is back, remember the ditches are for snowmobiles, not your SUV. Be careful out there driving and always make sure you have good tires on your vehicle.
Yes I am still around, I have been just extremely busy with behind the scenes work for StormChasingVideo.com so I don't get much time to update this site. Once the SCV site is fully updated, I'm going to direct my attention to this site.
Here is the video from last night.
I'm still around. I have been focusing on work and helping out the SCV crews in the field for chasing instead of chasing myself this spring while I wait for the auroras.
I was again treated to an amazing display of the Auroras or Northern Lights a few days ago and even was able to play around with a highly modified setup to do VR Aurora videos.
Here is the VR Video.
Hey folks, been a while since I have updated the blog. Lot's of cool new business stuff to talk about with the storm chasing and my take on ChaserCon this year along with surviving my first year as Daddy.
So let's dive in the deep end first, ChaserCon. I'll say it since most won't. It was not the ChaserCon of the past when Tim was alive. ChaserCon started as a party to hang out and get to know other chasers and watch each others videos and trade idea's.
On September 2nd, 2008 I wrapped up with filming for the show project called Tornado Road that was produced by Original Productions. The same Original Productions out of Los Angeles that produces Ice Road Truckers and Deadliest Catch.
I just heard from Neva's brother tonight that it is STILL on The Weather Channel.
What a insane end of summer. Let's see what fall brings. First off, crack book (facebook) kind of took over again as the social media outlet and my personal page got kicked to the back burner. So much has been happening here and I have been keeping busy with StormChasingVideo.com and with Laura.
Hard to imagine that she is now seven months old and starting to talk and hold her self up. Seem's like yesterday I cut the cord and held her hand for the first time.
Have a happy and safe 4th of July. Today is another huge day for StormChasingVideo.com We surpassed the 60,000 subscriber count for our channel on Youtube.com www.youtube.com/BNVN1
So proud of what we have been able to acomplish as a team effort at StormChasingVideo.com and proud to work with the best of the best in storm chasing.
