March 28th Tornado Chase

During the March 28, 2007 outbreak, me and my dad traveled out to the Texas/Oklahoma panhandles. We witnessed 6 tornades in the span of one hour, an amazing amount. Needless to say, this was my best chase yet. We got just about every type of tornado possible! I don't feel like writing up a detailed report, so just check out the video:

Thanks to my dad for getting us out there and mostly staying awake during the drive back. :)

Green Screen Studio: Complete

So I've finally got enough green cloth and lights to make me happy. It's got enough coverage to support an entire person. It's made out of junk, but it works great. While I don't have many uses for it right now, It'll be nice to have it around for when the time comes.

And in an unrelated note, the NASA World Wind team released a video showing some new features in the latest version. While the satellite photography isn't as high res as Google Earth's, it has plenty of amazing weather and topography features that blow Google Earth out of the water. And it's free.

August 26th chase

We went out around eastern colorado to catch two storms. No tornadoes but lots of rain and lightning. Some of the lightning was so strong it managed to glitch my camera, as seen in the picture above. Video:

The Wonderful World of Geocaching

I found my first geocache today. For those of you who don't know, it's basically modern day treasure hunting. People hide containers with logbooks and items all around the world. Then, people with GPS units enter in the coordinates and try to find them. I've been hearing of this game for awhile, but only recently decided to check it out. I was suprised to find about ten all within walking distance of our house. I went out to find "Mondo's Just an Ammo Can", a small cache down by the Lafayette Rec Center. After two previous unsucessfull attempts to find it, I finally got it in this stump.I'm going to go try for another today before the sun goes down.
