Looking like crap on TV

09/04/2004 Its an early morning but we were doing TV interviews with Fox 29 and News 12 in Fort Pierce Florida. Time to get some sleep and have some fun in the morning with this now small Hurricane Frances which may only be a Cat 1 when it comes on shore.

Currently heading for Hurricane Frances

09/03/2004 Currently heading for Hurricane Frances that is heading for us. Here are some photos that I have taken over the last 24 hours. 11 year old Tyler Booth of Okeechobee Florida stands guard waiting for looters while his family gets ready for Hurricane Frances.

They Deliver Oblivion...

09/02/2004  Powerful Hurricane Frances Is Moving Towards Florida. I'm Now In Orlando Florida. After a pretty sweet and fast flight on Sun Country and kicking back in seat 1A, I was able to get a good meal and some sleep. I'm going to need it. The Orlando International Airport Is A Mad House. I shot a bunch of video of the people getting out of the area due to Hurricane Frances. The gas stations are running out of fuel and the turnpikes heading north are jammed packed with people.  I will post photos and video soon...

09/01/2004 Getting ready for Hurricane Frances.

09/01/2004 Getting all the gear ready to go to Florida tomorrow to shoot lots of Hurricane Frances Footage. I'm expecting that the Hurricane Frances video is going to be just as crazy if not more then the Hurricane Charley Video. Now that I got my feet wet with Hurricane Charley and learned from some mistakes, I'm planning on having some fun shooting video during Hurricane Francis.

08/26/2004 Almost done with the video for Hurricane Charley.

<p>08/26/2004 Almost done with the video for Hurricane Charley. Yesterday I got the video footage from Mark and Jim and all I can say is WOW. This is the best hurricane footage of all time. Anyways, today I'll be taking some time off from the editing project this afternoon to storm chase. This morning I'm out shooting video for The Weather Channel in Minneapolis.</p>
