My Stupid Blog
I just finshed updating my Hurricane Rita blog. Yes I know the storm was back in 2005 but with the new website and the reviewing and updating of all the blogs, I have added all the missing details and links to all the footage http://www.weatherpaparazzi.com/content/hurricane-rita-blog
Now I only have Hurricane Wilma and TS Alberto to update and then I'm done with that part of the webpage for good.
Last week I finally realized why it has taken so long for me to update the websites, I like to write but I hate it at the same time because it just reminds me of when I was in school. It always took a lot of time and I never liked how I wrote it and would have to rewrite until it finally took several hours and way more time than I planned for it to take in the first place because I would have a run on sentence like this one...
Yeah, I know the storm was over two years ago but due to a non disclosure agreement I signed for the show and the whole website rebuild, I finally got the footage on line along with the blog for the hurricane Gustav chase.

Today I'm around the town of Oxbow, ND and documenting the flooding up here that is just insane. The people are scared and the wildlife is freaking out. I uploaded some more images and the crazy one has got to be the Deer trying to swim across the Red River to get away from the airboats that were out in the flood water to rescue people that were trapped by the rising waters.
I'm in Fargo for now but I'm not stuck here, I can get out on 94 but Interstate 29 is closed off to traffic due to the Wild Rice River flowing over it. Interstate 94 is closed off west of here as well and the area is being cut off. Almost all the roads in Richland County are flooded or washed out west of the red river to Interstate 29.
The water is rising and you can't get up here unless your coming up Interstate 94 and I don't know what the Buffalo river is looking like since I could not make it over there today.
Ok, just a quick update from the field. I'm in Fargo, ND right now and just feeding off footage of the flooding that I shot today. The flooding up here is getting worse and there is rain forecasted for Monday.
I'm just wrapping up and going to head back home for the night but I wanted to upload a few screen grabs. I already filled 4 memory cards in my still camera today and over an hour of stock footage, and the main show has not even started.
Yesterday I was up in Clay County, Minnesota to document the start of the massive flooding from the melting snow pack. The snow from last weeks blizzard and the large amount of snow that has fallen in the area all winter long is not rapidly melting and turning fields into lakes and small run off creeks into rivers.
I have uploaded some of the many images from area that can be found on my Smugmug account.
It's Friday evening and Neva and I are relaxing at home after a busy week of winter weather.
This week we got hit by a couple of snow storms with one being huge yesterday. The storm was a winner for shooting B-roll and for stock footage. I have uploaded a video of the two ENG video packages that I shot yesterday.
Ok, for the record, the global warming thing is a farking scam in my opinion. Yes we should be clean and not pollute the water and air but we are already doing all that so shut the hell up with the global warming stuff because it is hella cold outside. The Uncle Al Gore crap has got to stop because this winter has been just brutal with the winter weather slamming into the United States.
