Still around

Ahhh, I know it has been a LONG time since I have updated my personal blog page.  The good news is that the real page, which was my main master project is always being updated with new content.

So what have I been up to for this summer?  The northern plains chase season has been pretty much a bust which is ok by me.  It has given me time to reflect on life and work more on my company.  We (all of us) have been working on some great new exciting stuff for the later half of 2013 Hurricane and Winter seasons and the upcoming 2014 chase season. 

What an insane past 35 days...

Yes, I have not updated my blog in a month.  I don't know where to really begin so I will start with what is happening right now.  I'm sitting at the 58 Club in Champlin, MN waiting for my Juicy Lucy to cool down while sipping on a Pale Ale for a late dinner. 

The proper way to eat a Juicy Lucy is to eat the fries first and to let the burger cool down.  If you don't, you will end up with cheese running down the front of your shirt. 

With the first day of spring, winter will not go away anytime soon

Today was the first day of spring and the first day I have been able to get any work done at the office after an insane weekend.

First the shooting on the north side of Saint Cloud, then the winter storm Friday night, followed by Saint Patrick's Day and one of the most vivid Aurora Borealis displays ever.  I did not get much sleep on Sunday and when I finally got to sleep, I had to wake up and go back out into the blizzard up towards Alexandria, MN. 

Hello World

Hello World, I'm still here.  I thought it would be fitting if I used the computer programing setup of "Hello World" to write this blog since I have been off of my site for so long.
