Doomsday Blizzard 2012


Snapshot - 1Cedar Rapids, Iowa- I was pretty excited to get a package in the mail today. It was a dash camera, a DiGiJet Infrared Night Vision HD DVR – a gift from my friend Jeff.  I played with it for about 45 minutes before taking it out for a test run.  I have it plugged in now and am hoping to catch the whole blizzard on film overnight since that’s when it’s supposed to really start blowing the snow around! I will only catch the whole blizzard if the electricity stays on and the video turns out  I will speed it up and share a time lapsed doomsday blizzard video in the morning.  The video will be filmed from the West Bank of Cedar Rapids pointing towards Quaker Oats/Pepsi Co.

I realize most of these videos are dark but hey, it’s dark outside! 🙂

2 am

This post will be updated as the storm rolls in!

I had to drive in the blizzard to pick my son up last night. Jim Pate rode along and we discussed past close calls and road conditions.

I am working on a time-lapsed video from last night into the early hours of the morning that I will be posting.

Mr. & Mrs. Rogers Downtown District Neighborhood


It’s a Beuuutifull Day In Their Neighborhood


Not So For the Rest of Cedar Rapids Taxpayers

“The thought behind the talk is to turn the downtown into a seven-day-a-week, 24-hour-a-day neighborhood to use and spend time in, not to rush into and then flee once the workday is done.”

Those in Cedar Rapids Downtown District work hard. They work hard thinking up ways to make their neighborhood better and scheming to make all the other neighborhoods pay for their dreams.

When you are stuck trying to get across Cedar Rapids by four way stop signs and backed up cars along nearly vacant bike lanes, don’t get mad. Get justice on election day. Throw out those who consider the rest of Cedar Rapids second class in all but tax assessments.

Cedar Rapids will smell a lot better if you do.
