The monsoon interview for 3TV

Well here it is…for you guys who don’t live locally (or those that do and completely dropped the ball last night by missing it!), the brief little interview my bud Scott Wood and I did for April Warnecke and Channel 3 around a month ago. The interview aired last night as part of their annual Monsoon Special and it was awesome to be a part of it!

To watch it, hit play and let the buffer fill for a bit and you can skip to the -2:58 mark where it begins. Or you can watch the whole thing. I found it fascinating that a grade school girl did a project on the rain totals in Phoenix since 1949 and found that it rains more on the weekends! How weird is that?

Hope you enjoy it and once again, thanks to April and 3TV for inviting us to do this. What a treat, what an honor…it was a ton of fun.

Watch 3TV’s Monsoon Special tonight!

Well, as they say, there’s nowhere to go but down!

Okay, kidding, but tonight is a pretty big deal for me and will undoubtedly be a major milestone in my life that I will always remember.

A month or two ago, 3TV meteorologist April Warnecke asked me if I was interested in doing a monsoon photography interview for her. She also asked if I knew anyone else, because she wanted to get two of us into the story. Of course Scott Wood came to mind. He’s kind of like my monsoon-chasing twin if I ever had one. And if I was to ever have a “nemesis”, it would also be him…and likely vice versa I’m sure. One of us getting skunked, while the other hits the jackpot with lightning photos…would no doubt cause some serious jealousy!

It’s already happened actually, but I don’t want to talk about it. *grin* We help each other, we support each other and yes, there is a healthy competition going on too. This summer will definitely be an interesting one!

So a few weeks after April’s request, Scott and I met her out at Papago Park in the hot mid-day sun. It was a total blast, both her and James (the cameraman) were awesome, fun and helped us feel super relaxed.

Tonight, June 8th @ 6:30pm the Monsoon Special airs on 3TV. If you live here locally, make sure to watch it/dvr it or ignore it if that’s what you really want to do!

I’ll be trying to find it online after it airs and will of course post it here tomorrow for those people out of state.

Meanwhile, here are some pictures from the day of the interview. Thanks so much April for asking us to be a part of this!
