Oklahoma Blizzard/SK Ski Bike Jump

Heavy snow and high winds are causing blizzard conditions in areas of Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas today as a major winter storm deposits large amounts of moisture over the southern plain states. On Sunday Temperatures dropped from the 50s F down below freezing and into the 20s F shocking residents there. Amarillo, Texas reports 19 inches of snow on the ground. A state of emergency has been declared in 56 counties of Oklahoma as the system moves into southern Kansas. Blizzard warnings stretch across the Texas panhandle, north west Oklahoma, south central Kansas, and winter storm warnings are now up for most of Missouri, eastern Iowa and north western Illinois.

EXTREME blizzard footage from the Dominator 2 plowing roads and standing in 5 foot snow drifts near Woodward! 14-16" at least already!"

Meanwhile in Saskatchewan, people are enjoying warm temperatures and trying new ways to fool around in the snow. Check this video from today of a 'ski bike' jump:

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!
