Douglas Park Lightning Storm - August 22, 2012

Update with photos:






Sometimes the little storms are the most beautiful, this was certainly the case last night as a non-severe lightning storm rolled by just south of Regina and was perfectly captured from the top a the Douglas Park hill over looking the city of Regina, Wascana Lake, Conexus Centre of the Arts and the Saskatchewan Legislature. The storm structure, intense lightning, unreal sunset and all the colors over looking the lake was a great way to cap a great year of storms in Saskatchewan.

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 the lake at Wascana in Regina or up north at Pratt. Generally, I spend more time nowcasting for chasers around Saskatchewan which saves on gas and keeps me safe in my studio/bunker.

Once storm season comes to an end in August, gaming season then begins. Find me on Twitch.com/jaredmysko playing non-violent games like Forza and FIFA.

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