Here's a review from storm chaser Bill Doms.
Just got done watching Alex Sahlberg's "Severe Atmosphere" for the 1998-2003 years and his 2004
VCD. Alex has what is likely the complete video library of every severe storm to hit the Duluth/Superior area for the 6 year
period. What I really like about Alex's 98-03 video is it is not a chase video. It is a weather video. Yes, it has awesome
lightning, 2" hail, monster shelf clouds, 65 mph winds, etc….but it also has giant November Lake Superior waves big
enough to clear the walls at Canal Park, enormous ships getting stuck in the channel, the changing of the seasons, and yes,
a somber reminder the big lake can be deadly. The editing will keep you watching and wondering what is behind the next transition.
At the end I was wishing there was more!
Good thing the 2004 VCD was there. Alex once again shows his natural editing
talent by putting together an entertaining vid mixing weather with other events which culminates with one of my favorite time
lapses of the year…the 9-23-04 wind event shelf. This beast comes rolling across the Duluth harbor right into your face.
This time lapse alone makes the vid worth the time! If you have seen the stunning sites of the Duluth area on the perfect
days, check it out when things go wrong…really wrong.
Oh yeah, all of this video was shot within 3 miles of his
house! Get this vid and ask yourself if you have had this much action in
your own backyard!
