Anything outdoors!  Tornadoes, eagles, blizzards, or auroras.  If it is in the sky, running through the woods or swimming in the water, I'm there!

Last day of boring brown

Looks like we will finally have winter whack us starting tomorrow morning. We have been below freezing (and below 20F) for 5 days now. Today was full sun with a high of 16F so no problem with warm ground. Depending on how warm the H925 to H85 level gets will dictate how much snow we end up with. I wouldn't rule out over 10" if we avoid the sleet. I'm too far north for the FZRA but northern IA is going to be a freakin' mess by Sunday morning.

Cams are bagged and ready to go tomorrow!

Kids and I enjoyed the last snow-free day to check out some of the ice near our home.

Those are some pretty HEFTY water proofing on the cameras...

I little trick I learned from the guys who make some show called Deadliest Catch. I prefer the gallon zip lock baggies :)

Um ok, and they have a big budget to replace cameras and parts.

Anything exposed like the LCD that gets wet will fry. You want to get a Petrol rain cover.

We have slip covers for the LCD's with a thin piece of electrical tape around the hinge. It works. Will invest in the Petrol covers next season just to keep dirt out too.
