Wrapping up the blizzard chase in Wall, SD.

Wow, yes I am really posting a blog and updating the site.  I am just finishing up the chase in Wall, SD for the Winter Storm and Blizzard.  Weather Channel is calling this Winter Storm Atlas and it is living up to it's name as putting Winter Storm Season 2013-2014 on the map. 

I did laugh my ass off at the hype over Tropical Storm Karen and the forecast computer models verified the weakening of the system.  The real story was the storm system the caused the tornadoic storms in Nebraska and Iowa yesterday and the major Blizzard that hit Wyoming and South Dakota.
