1. While we missed out on the big blizzard of 2009, we did get a little bit of snow from what was left of the system. I decided that it would be the perfect opportunity to try out the new camcorder (Canon HG21) and tripod. It's unedited raw / stock footage so it may be a bit boring but a good experiment for me.

  2. Chased a massive tornadic supercell at night across central IL. Started in Jacksonville and then ended up just east of Springfield, IL. Unfortunately my night ended prematurely as I ran into some large debris. (not captured on video) Check out the chase log on my website for all the insane details. I apologize for the video and audio interference. My cell phone was too close to the camcorder and it was really causing problems.

  3. Storm chase in eastern Illinois through Douglas, Coles, and Edgar counties. Got into some small hail, saw a rainbow, and ran into a few other chasers.

  5. Short evening storm chase just outside of Champaign, IL. Storm had a radar indicated tornado warning, but I never saw any rotation from my location.

Severe weather, storm chasing, and other weather related video that I shoot out in the field. Home base is in Illinois, but I do occasionally venture out in search of some good storms. Find out more at http://www.stansweather.net.
