August 19th, 2014 Lightning Storm

UPDATE: I was not the only one to see the green glow coming from the ground, several others tweeted about it and SaskPower had to deal with a major power outage to many area in and around Regina. It is believed to be a transformer explosion after a lightning strike just west of the city.

Good dry cg lightning show over Wascana Lake this evening, the last photo in this set is the green afterglow of a strike just as the shudder opened. I have never seen that before, weird.

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.

There are two seasons in my world, storm season and gaming season. April and September separate the two. I play FIFA, World Of Warships and Battlefield 1 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!
