  • It's difficult holding the reporter in one hand and managing halfway clear footage of the action in the other - complete with a profile of the reporter.

    Summer storms capture something powerful in the world. With their ominous torrential drivebys, I love how it gives everyone a chance to stop and reflect...and respect the natural world around us.

    My nephew, Bradley the eyewitness reporter is pointing out the slow roll of smoke escaping from a neighbor's house. Minutes before we heard the thunderous snap of lighting inside the house, followed by Bradley taking his post at the front door window to watch the "Fira" trucks whirl by. They barely made it past our house.

    The excitement was indeed electric for the fire truck loving reporter clinched in my left hand. If the firemen hadn't quenched the fire much quicker, no doubt this mild mannered reporter would have rushed inside to any one of his superhero suits. For a group shot with the firemen that is.
