Good Bye Dad

One of the hardest blog posts I have had to write.  While I was out on assignement up in International Falls, MN earlier this month, my sister called me as I was setting up for the daylight -42F video package and told me that I needed to head back to Minneapolis as soon as possible today since my dad took a turn for the worse. 

1/2/2014 Extreme cold temps at sunrise in International Falls, MN

BRRRRRRRR, at sunrise this morning it was pretty freaking cold.  The official report from the airport as -42F with outlying areas a few degree's colder.
I did find out the the Jeep temperature sensor bottoms out at -40F.

Now I'm heading home to get cleaned up then to head down to Minneapolis to see my Dad in the hospital. 

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.  

Another month of no posts, here is an update on stuff.

Wow, Facebook and Twitter updates are reallying getting in the way of updating my personal website.  So while I kill time before taking Gustav to the vet today, I thought "Hey, maybe I should update my website"...

So what has been going on?  Lot's of stuff.  I have been very busy with work and that is a good thing.
