Colorado Severe Weather

Here is photo I thought I'd share from April 15th near Ault CO.  It was my first chase of the year where TVS was indicated on radar.  Looking forward to more spring storms on The Great Plains of Colorado.

Had another enjoyable trip out to the #EasternPlains of #Colorado last night chasing some #SevereWeather.  It's quite the experience to be out in the middle of no where with these powerful #storms rolling across the plains!

Chasing Rainbows

It seems that my life consists of always chasing a dream.  Always seeking out my talents and desires, never knowing where they'll lead me.  As of late though, I feel like I'm getting closer and closer to catching my rainbow.     

This photo I took yesterday sums things up quite well.  

Chase your rainbow and fulfill your dreams!

Facebook is Still the Best

Facebook for business has been changing dramatically, but it's still the best for referring customers back to your business.

Despite Facebook's recent changes it still will provide you with the best ROI for your social media marketing strategies.  It's important that your business continue to weather the storm and find ways to overcome the new obstacles.

What have you done beat Facebook's new algorithms?

According to data from Shareaholic, Facebook and Pinterest drive the most social media referral traffic.

I think the amount of engagement in communities is far greater than other social media sites.  

There are two specific places where improvement is needed.  First off, they need to develop a better analytics tool that is easily accessible and understood.  Second, they  need to push the "news feed" part of the platform so that posting to a community is not required to get engagement and visibility.

I believe Google is sitting on a gold mine since it heavily influences search results.  They just need incorporate some aspects from Facebook to create a user friendly UI. 

Where do you see the need for improvement?

JUST LIKE TWISTER I WAS GLAD THEIR WAS A CELLAR WHEN THE SIDE WINDER HIT MINERAL WELLS TX. ANYWAY I CAN'T IMAGINE HOW ANYONE CAN CHASE. STORMS. SCARY.

Here's a neat progression through the seasons I captured over the last year along the #PoudreRiver. Fortunate to have grown up in such a beautiful state!

Chasing #severeweather has always been a hobby of mine.  It's not always for the adrenaline rush, but the photo opportunities are endless!

I took my kids here and they loved it! They asked me when they can go back to the dentist, which is a pretty good sign. The dentist and staff were very friendly and even helped me calm my son down before his cleaning. Thanks Treasured Teeth!

Hands down the best veterinary hospital in the area! Unbelievable customer service and a well educated staff that is there to help your pets. My dog Wesley has now had two ACL replacement surgeries here, one of which was just a week ago. His last one was a complete success and he's already putting weight on his leg from his most recent! Dr. Klingenberg is honest, caring and extremely knowledgeable. I would recommend Sheep Draw to anyone in need of a well-qualified veterinarian, that truly cares about the well-being of your pet.

Unbelievable service! I was recently helped by Michael who retrieved a broken car key in my ignition. Michael was happy to help me on a holiday and could not have been more friendly or helpful. When everything was said and done I felt that I should've paid him more for all his hard work and great advice. I will recommend anyone to call Greeley Lock & Key even before contacting AAA. Thanks again!
