Good weather?

I just wanted to make a post just for the sake of wasting more pixels. Maybe today would be a good day for a bike ride. I can see some convective clouds on the radar so I would like to get a good view. Living in Caswell really is nice with very little wind but I can't see the horizon from here, thats for sure. Even if I stood on my roof (or put a cam there) it is impossible to see west of here due to the trees and the fact that we are on a down-slope. It brings back memories of 1986. June 1st was the craziest day of my life when a tornado went over our house in Lawson Heights. I still have my doubts as far as what direction it came from but Lawson Heights is very open with big parks and the river valley. I think Caswell is safer but hopefully I did not just jinx it!

About Me

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 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!
