I have a couple of boxes of old photos in storage at home, mainly taken during the late 80s and early 90s. These are the kind of shots that mean little to you until enough time passes by, at which point they become 'historical' enough to be interesting. Every so often I'll post a few of these (hopefully it won't turn this blog into the stereotypical dreaded family slideshow).

This set is from a snowstorm in December 1993 in southwestern Pennsylvania, shot in east Washington (a suburb of Pittsburgh) along East Beau Street, Morgan Avenue and McKennan Avenue. Interestingly enough, I can't find online data from this storm (if you type in 1993 snowstorms, all you get is tons of info on the March Superstorm). Obviously there is at least 14-16 inches of snow evident in these shots. I don't remember the exact date, but this happened while I was home at my parent's house over Christmas break. I know this is not the March superstorm, as I didn't have a 35mm camera until June of that year. Back in this part of my storm observing life, I was strictly a lightning photographer. I wish I had been more appreciative of the photographic aspect of snowstorms back then like I am now.

Restoration of the old stormhighway.com

After some long-term thought, I decided to pull a Michael Jordan on the old web site. The main reason being that a week or so ago, I decided I wanted to re-index and repost all of my old storm observing logs. Rather than doing a rebuild from scratch, it was just easier to re-upload all of the old site structure to accomplish this. The way it was meets my standards just fine - no need to reinvent the wheel. With the media server taking the bandwidth load of the video and larger photos, I figured that there's not much reason to let all of my old educational content-writing work go to waste. So, the old site is coming back in its entirety.
