2005 was my busiest year ever for weather footage work, and I put many thousands of miles into covering all types of weather across the country. Hurricane Rita was the most significant event I was priveleged to cover for a national TV network. The Great Plains chase season was considered a difficult one overall, with few opportunities in May. However, my June trip in the Plains was one of my best, with several high-contrast tornadoes captured.

2005 also brought my first foray into HD video in November. I captured my first good HD lightning video that month with a fall chase in the Midwest.
