Video from yesterday's storms...

The video from yesterday's storms in central Saskatchewan will be posted later today. There wasn't much lightning but the rolling wall cloud looks incredible with aqua green clouds behind it. The photo in the previous post shows the cloud that eventually was responsible for the piles of hail and that sign that got destroyed. The storm damage was only about one kilometre south of where we were taking all the photos and video. As soon as the thing came over our heads it wrapped around us and we went back to the highway to find cars stopped on the side of the road due to visibilty (along with the damage). It was pretty scary for a few minutes there!

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!
