The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
-Psalm 19:1

Do you know that God controls the clouds and makes his lightning flash?

The Flight of a South Georgia Storm Chaser headed home...

First of all, I was rendered Wifi-less at my last hotel, so I wasn't able to check anything. Now, we are sitting here at KCI awaiting our flight home. On the way here, a nice flanking line setting up out the window... getting ready to fire... I think, you've got to be freakin kidding me, right? Ma Nature must have some serious issues with me... She is laughing her butt off right about now. Well, wouldn't you know it... I get to the airport and find out that the city I am fixin' to depart from is under a slight risk... are you kidding me, Ma Nature... mother, father Chinese dentist... it's just not fair... you know? Sick irony. (I am actually a little bothered by the wet downbursts mentioned in the discussion... not a thing I like the idea of flying through...) Oh, and that's not all... there is text for back home... blah, blah, blah, mid afternoon... you know, before I arrive. That's when a ridge settles in. I decided not to read the AFD for back home. It's too depressing to think about. I know how this story plays out. The good news is that if a tornado approaches the airport, I know where to send Ted, while I stay here and shoot pics and video (since I am now an experienced videographer...). All-in-all, and all joking aside... this has been the most phenomenal experience of my life. I have seen and learned so much. I have seen spectacular storm structure, long-lived, rotating wall clouds, heard a tornado siren and hail and found out a lot about producing a show. I have a whole new appreciation for the behind the scenes and the crew. The crew with us was incredible! I'd do it all again in a heartbeat!

That's it for now. I'm headed back to South Georgia for a continuation of my Dewvoid... one day, I'll "bag the big one!"



  1. Safe flight home.

  2. Thanks, Jeff, and Jess, you bet!!!

  3. Bill, that is awesome!!!! Thanks so much for sharing!!! I miss those guys so much. Incidentally, they shared with me their "behind the scenes-unrated" cut. Carroll should not be trusted with a bb gun.
