Canadian Prairie Storms Blog is Born!

The blog revolotion has just produced another new horizon, so to speak. The looming danger of an approaching wave of fast moving, moderate precipitation in the middle of January would normally not be of great concern, but it was an opportunity to comment on what is occuring and what might happen as a result. This is "Canadian Prairie Storms", a blog from the middle of the Canadian Prairies, Saskatoon.

From the looks of the situation, a large wave of precipitation has moved out of most of southern Alberta and quickly into parts of Saskatchewan today. Saskatoon is forecast for 2 to 4 cm of snow today. Nothing falling at this time but radar shows the snow just at the south-west edge of the city.

Kayaking, bird watching, fishing and wildlife photography are my summer hobbies when waiting for storms. See my adventures on YouTube!

I build a daily map of storm risk for the Canadian Prairies to accomplish two things. One, translate the complications of the meteorologists into something simple that the public can understand clearly. Two, become a buffer on social media to either raise the alarm and calm the masses depending on the level of hype.

Storm chasing is limited nowadays to a few photo ops by Wascana Lake in Regina or up north at Pratt Lake. Generally, I spend more time tracking storms from home and sharing forecasts and great footage on Twitter which saves on gas and keeps me safe in my studio/bunker.

There are two seasons in my world, storm season and gaming season. April and September separate the two. I play FIFA, Sea Of Thieves and Fortnite with live streams on Twitch.tv/JaredSkStorm Ask me about sports, I am a fan and knowledge base of all things FIFA, Premier League, CFL and NFL (yes its all football). 

Thanks for all the likes, shares, comments and encouragement. Stay safe and enjoy the weather!
