Saskatoon blizzard turning into a rescue operation

People are stranded in their cars and a train is stuck. People are advised not to go out unless you are rescue personelle. It is unknown how much snow has fallen but it is still snowing and blowing hard. More updates as they come in. The live scanner feed is up and very popular.

...rush hour traffic is still standing still at 6:20pm on University Bridge, Broadway Bridge is open. ahhh , everythings a mess...

Kayaking, bird watching, fishing and wildlife photography are my summer hobbies when waiting for storms. See my adventures on YouTube!

I build a daily map of storm risk for the Canadian Prairies to accomplish two things. One, translate the complications of the meteorologists into something simple that the public can understand clearly. Two, become a buffer on social media to either raise the alarm and calm the masses depending on the level of hype.

Storm chasing is limited nowadays to a few photo ops by the lake at Wascana in Regina or up north at Pratt. Generally, I spend more time nowcasting for chasers around Saskatchewan which saves on gas and keeps me safe in my studio/bunker.

Once storm season comes to an end in August, gaming season then begins. Find me on Twitch.com/jaredmysko playing non-violent games like Forza and FIFA.

Thanks for all the likes, shares, comments and encouragement. Stay safe and enjoy the weather!
