Happy New Year.

Happy New Year everyone and have a safe weekend.

Don't end up like the driver in the latest video that we shot in Saint Cloud, MN of a DUI crash just after the new year started.  

12/30/2010 Fergus Falls, MN Blizzard

With Minnesota being hit with a record number of Tornadoes and now back to back winter storms and blizzards, it is starting to feel a little like a weather war zone.   So to joke around with that theme, I got in to the forbidden zone on Interstate 94 before the roads were closed, documented the storms and got out before I was trapped in the forbidden zone.

But seriously now a powerful winter storm system is hitting West Central and Northern Minnesota last night with a blizzard on Thursday evening  and continuing into New Years Eve.

12/30/2010 Denver, CO Lunch Hour Snow Storm Video

BNVN Weather Paparazzi Tony Laubach was out in the snow today in Denver, CO and shot video of Denver's first big snow of the season that promises to add well to the meager 1.5" of snow that's fallen so far for the entire season.

Snow totals of up to a foot are possible over parts of the Denver Metro Area through Friday morning.

Yet another winter storm for the Minneapolis, MN metro area

Like a nightmare that wont end, the Minneapolis, MN area is getting hit again with another half foot of snow during the overnight hours going into Christmas Eve. 

12/20/2010 Winter Storm Video

For the third time in less than ten days, central Minnesota has been hit hard with another winter storm that crippled the roads during the afternoon rush hour on Monday.

The Minnesota State Patrol reported dozens of vehicles had spun out and ended up in the ditch and numerous crashes around the metro and along the Interstate 94 corridor to St. Cloud, MN. 

In the video it shows poor driving conditions along interstate 94 and into the metro area where several cars were off to the side of the interstate after crashing.

12/13/2010 Sarasota Florida Cold Weather Blast

In Sarasota, FL this morning, BNVN Weather Paparazzi shot this video of cold 'sand blasting' winds on Siesta Key Beach. The southern end of the massive storm system that brought blizzard conditions to the northern states is now pushing into Florida.  Most of the state of Florida is under Hard Freeze Warnings and even ind Chill Warnings for the Sunshine State.

The good news about this weather is that the surfers in Florida are loving it with high surf warnings for the Gulf Coast of Florida.

12/12/2010 Lake Michigan Huge Waves

As the extreme winter storm moved off to the east, in it's wake it brought high winds to Lake Michigan where BNVN Weather Paparazzi and Captian Eric Treece of the Wilfred Sykes was anchored in Milwaukee Harbor. Eric brought the ship in during a winter storm. Video shows misc scenes with waves smashing into the Milwaukee Harbor Lighthouse and Breakwall. The lighthouse in the video is 61' high and the waves were easily clearing the top of that as they crashed into it. Highest wind gust on the Sykes was 60 Mph.


12/11/2010 Madison, WI Blizzard video

The powerful winter storm system that hit Minneapolis, MN with blizzard conditions and dumped 17 to 21 inches of snow on the area is moving to the east.

BNVN Weather Paparazzi Shannon Lupton shot this video in Madison Wisconsin that documents the extreme weather conditions as the Blizzard moves off from the Midwest to the east coast.

Various shots of snow plows on I39/90, heavy snow and wind and poor driving conditions. Footage of traffic stuck in the snow on the roadway and cars in the ditch west of Madison.
