Misguided mainstream media and it's under appreciation for our National Weather Service

Here is an opinion article, one you won’t see me post too often. Mainstream media affiliate Fox News published an article calling for the abolition of our country’s National Weather Service. Source link found here. The article makes a claim that our National Weather Service has outlived it’s usefulness. It cites such facts as failure [read more...]

Gallery: Colorado Rockies in Summer

My four day road trip out to the central Colorado Rocky Mountains to see Pikes Peak, Cripple Creek and other area attractions. Four days just isn’t enough for all the things to see out there either! I got to visit the summit of Pikes Peak, a 14,110 foot tall mountain with a road to the [read more...]

Storm Chase Day 3 - Boredom

Day 3 out of 11, I didn’t leave this area at all. Once again, nothing happened. The most interesting stuff was heavy rain in Florida, and some random high wind and hail reports in the western states. Today was supposed to be yet another home chore day but it became home bored/nap every few hours [read more...]

Storm Chase Day 2 - Sight seeing in southwest Oklahoma

Sunday brought some absolutely beautiful weather to the area, which made for the perfect sight seeing day. Even though there was no severe weather anywhere in the region, I still had a great time. I took a trip with a buddy to the Wichita Mountains National Wildlife Preserve in southwest Oklahoma. We drove around, saw [read more...]
