Southern Manitoba Storm Chasing - June 9, 2012

Storm chasers from across Saskatchewan made the trip on Saturday for early preparation of what is to be expected as the most active year for storms in our lifetimes. Well over 30 vehicles were seen following Reed Timmer and late into the evening. Our team kept ahead with great forecasting and spotting experience and the latest technology available. (Sasktel recently joined Manitoba's network for full coverage of the most active storm chasing area in Canada) Conditions were ripe for the activity on this day and we start this part of the video near Emerson, Manitoba as we move north east in the safest part of the storm while Reed and the reinforced Dominator vehicle took the core of the storm, pounded with golf ball or large size hail.

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!
