Previous Lunar Eclipse (March 3rd, 2007)

I thought I'd throw up the previous eclipse I shot earlier this year. I'm ready for some northern lights now! Last December was amazing. School has been kicking my ass for the last two weeks, thank Jesus for Labor Day.

Lunar Eclipse last night.

I left a tad late, and missed the first part of the show, but still caught the majority of it. Click to enlarge.

Shelf Cloud Pics

Nice little shelf that developed in North KC on Friday night. It never met severe criteria, but it didn't matter!

New Video of 5/5

Timelapse of the first tornado warned cell, west of Pratt KS. Right as the wall cloud formed, was when the first tornado warning came out, then, began our long journey. Right when you see the first funnel and the camera start to move, and Darin in the video...right after that when we drive north, was when the first touchdown occured. Probably 1/4- 1/2 mile to our north. This storm struggled all day and looked to put down a tornado many times, but never did. More videos posted this week as I have time.

Lots of Stuff

Been kind of busy with work and now school as well as other "projects." This will be my hardest semester to date, and the next 2 will be just as difficult, possibly more.

I went solo chasing yesterday, which didn't result in much. On a storm near Valley Falls, the updraft base was on the north side, precip was being vented southeastward while the storm was moving NE. It looked like it had a high-based meso to it briefly, but my presence vaporized that storm as well as any other ones I approached. I hadn't looked at any models, just "happened" to read SPC's MD when I got home and decided "What the hey."

Nice tornado-warned storm in Missouri about the time I left, and I debated to go east or west along the boundary, and it was evident that convergence was better west, but shear weaker, and weak convergence with sw sfc winds further east, but stronger upper/mid-level shear. The towers I watched to the east wouldn't last long, so when I saw storms reorganizing on top of Topeka, off I went. I shot another photograph of one of those little updrafts that looked like a supercell, just like last month, so maybe I'll post it soon.

Recent pictures, including the meteor shower from Sunday night.

Another Greensburg Video

I have never really messed with video, as Darin does the majority of it, but I finally sat down and figured out a lot of stuff with Pinnacle 10. I really hate the software. I have wanted to use this song for nearly 2 years, and have had this idea in my head for 3 months. It's off of the Man on Fire soundtrack.
