Album options ▾ June 23 to 26 - Epic Storm Tour (slideshow)

Beginning in Saskatoon with a riverboat cruise. Then off to Cypress Hills to wait for storms to emerge where we ran into thick fog. Southern Alberta produced nothing until midnight besides antelope and a nice sunset. Things took off earlier on Monday as we chased the first big supercell through the Badlands of Alberta with intercept south of Oyen. Following it back to Saskatoon, we got to core punch west of Kindersley, confirming golf ball size hail. The next day went completely as planned with 3 major thunderstorms including the tornadic supercell at Hodgeville starting after 3pm. A squall line and once in a lifetime type mammatus cloud formations just west of Regina to get me home!

All this from    the Blackberry Playbook, now to go through everything on the main camera, LOL! Timelapse works and a full length  HD video still to come!

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!
