    While it seems like the title to a bad SyFy channel disaster movie, this has become the topic of discussion amongst various media groups.

  • It’s Time To Begin

    It’s about time to revive this place. I stopped posting for a while because, while lots of things were going on, I didn’t have much to talk about. Now, I have a lot more to talk about, and I think this is an excellent place to continue to share ideas and progress in various areas. [...]

     Well, it sure has been a while since I’ve posted anything here. I’ve had quite the full plate working on a presentation for the upcoming American Meteorology Society Conference on Severe Local storms, which has been a work in progress since at least April of this year.

    It’s been a long and highly uneventful spring, but quite pleasant none the less! Even though severe weather kicked in early this year, it sure didn’t stick around.
