Here's a quick summary of subjects and events from the past couple of months:

Winter driving / icy road educational videos

All of my spare time outside of work since mid-October has been consumed with the production of these three educational/awareness videos on winter driving and icy roads. These links go to Youtube:

Video: How to correct a slide on an icy road (and how to prevent them)Video: Icy Bridges: Weather's underrated killerVideo: Deadliest Weather: Freezing Rain

UP 844's return to the rails through St. Louis

Union Pacific's steam locomotive #844 recently underwent a lengthy overhaul, and in October made its first major trip since the work was completed. The run to Memphis took it through St. Louis in mid-October, and I took the day off to go capture some video. I recently upgraded to a 4K video workflow, and this was the new camera's first shoot.

November 3 St. Louis thunderstorms

Summer-like weather persisted well into the fall, including a few rounds of thunderstorms and severe weather. These nighttime storms rolled through the metro on the 3rd. Even the mosquitoes were still out in force this night! This video was also shot in 4K.

With the capture of that video, I now have footage of lightning with the Gateway Arch in every month of the year, testifying to the year-round-ness of St. Louis' storm season. I put together this compilation of these videos here:
