CTV + Big Winter Storm?

Yesterday I finally made the switch to CTV. I had been debating on it for awhile and finally bit the bullet and I'm glad I did. Their setup is so simple and easy and actually works flawlessly on my older laptop. TVNs setup involved multiple applications and caused my machine to constantly crash and freeze up. So I definitely look forward to streaming with CTV, Ive also seen what goes on behind the scenes and their customer service is great and they really look out for each other. I like that in a company.

It wasn't a personal decision, people have been pressuring me to switch over for months. I don't give in to pressure and I don't do stuff to please others or "be with everybody else." I do what works best for me regardless of whos involved.

I had many many requests for people to view my stream last year and unfortunately because it always crashed I had to tell them sorry. That will not be the case next season!!! So be ready!

Now onto the weather, like a hawk I have been watching this upcoming system. I always love when a system shows up many days out and verifies, because then I can throw it in all my critics faces. I get scoffed at often for watching models predict storms further out. Although it looks like the brunt of this storm is going to miss Chicago [go figure] and favor areas west of here. The low will track pretty much over the city it looks like. Im not expecting a whole lot of action around here.

With this system comes a debate on whether or not to actually go on a blizzard chase. I wasn't even considering it but some newer chasers reached out to me and said if I drove they'd pay for gas and whatnot. I might take them up on that offer since it would cut costs. Plus it'll give me a chance to test the stream in the field and make my debut, and hey ya never know...I could end up getting something interesting and getting it shown on TV and perhaps finally make a sale and get paid for what I love to do.

Also, we had our first measurable snow of the winter 09-10 season early this morning. About a month late. 2009 continues to defy what is considered the norm and prove that in the world of weather nothing is normal.

Rolex didn't want Mickey to be on their most high-end pieces. This model is currently available on James List at a price of $3,500. The others are pictures of similar rolex replica sale Mickey Mouse watches so you can see a bit of the range of models. Prices for these pieces all seem to be under $5,000 today - where you can find them. For nostalgic purposes or simply as interesting collector's items, these are some pretty interesting and rare Rolex replica watches sale that certainly take a lot of the current stuffiness out of the high-end Swiss rolex replica sale watch industry. It is also worth noting that during most of Walt Disney's later life he wore rolex replica uk timepieces. I am always torn about writing about Rolex replica watches uk - because frankly, they don't need the press. While I'd be happy wearing any number of Rolex replica watches uk (although I feel most of them are too small these days), there are a few interesting models that standout to me that don't get a lot of face time.
