It's that time of year again! We've made it through another winter into the season of warming temperatures, green vegetation and thunderstorms.

After missing the entire spring tornado season last year due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, I am especially looking forward to this year where quarantines and travel bans don't appear to be on the table across the Plains and Midwest. That being said, I will still be employing a strict personal protocol of essentially living out of my vehicle while on the road. I've already been successful in proving the proof-of-concept of zero-contact travel during my winter weather trip to Texas, and plan to keep those in practice through the spring. I also have no-contact procedures ready for contingencies such as vehicle breakdowns. Of course, should the virus experience a resurgence with the re-issuance of travel restrictions this spring, I will abide by them the same way I did last year - even if it means missing out on opportunities (last year, the pandemic restrictions resulted in my first zero-tornado year since 2009).

As for photo and video goals this year, I will be continuing focusing on high-speed lightning video as a primary subject, including shooting at much higher framerates than the 720p@1500fps I've been using the past 2 years. I'm pretty excited to see how that will turn out, so as always, stay tuned!
