Bluedog and the Weather Woodie

I managed to escape yesterday's crazy weather chase by erecting a shelter of soft news to hide in, but my in-house colleague Bluedog Photog (pictured here tracking Hurricane Isabel a few years back) led the pursuit. While he and partner Brent Campbell didn't spot any funnel clouds, they did get sucked up into the swirling vortex that is a station-led weathergasm. Having run that particular gauntlet myself a time or ten, I find I greatly prefer reading a chronicle such as this, than eating all that sideways rain myself. Not that I've missed my chance: Hurricane season is just getting cranked up and it's only a matter of time before I join Bluedog in the insufferable hunt. Until then, I'll be under my desk in the newsroom, stockpiling canned foods and cruising my laptop. Remember, you never saw me...

Thanks for the plug brother... I know your site gets more hits than mine, I just peaked today with more than 20 an hour. Stay low over there in High Pockets, I know it's hard!

Cool Blog, I never really thought about it that way.

I have a Hurricane Katrina blog. It pretty much covers hurricane related stuff.

Thank you - and keep up the thoughts!
