Gesundheit! "Yet another reason to hate pollen: It may screw up your weather"
Those pollen grains in the air that make you miserable may have a surprising and unwelcome side effect: heavier rain.

Very good, and timely, safety information from the National Weather Service in Norman, OK.
Just like a fire, an earthquake or an automobile accident, a tornado is a low probability, high impact event. Chances are, you will never experience a tornado. Even if you live in the heart of tornado alley, the chances that your house will be struck by a tornado are small.

When the going gets tough...
If there's so much snow that you can't get over it, can't get around it, you might as well go through it—and some people are digging tunnels to do just that.

A very enjoyable read with E.O. Wilson who happens to be on my "most admired" list. :)
To save our planet’s biodiversity – something that’s essential for our survival as a species – could biologists worldwide be united behind a single common purpose?

Desperate times, desperate measures. "CA tapping water that rained 20,000 yrs ago to deal with epic #drought"
California is so thirsty that it's drilling down through the eons to tap water that fell on Earth 10,000 to 20,000 years ago.

Latest USA Drought Monitor is out. In spite of recent rain/snow in parts of OK & TX, extreme and/or exceptional conditions persist. Almost no change for CA, NV, and OR.
U.S. Drought Monitor. The U.S. Drought Monitor is unique, blending numeric measures of drought and experts' best judgment into a single map every week. It started in 1999 as a federal, state, and academic partnership, growing out of a Western Governors' Association initiative to provide timely ...

Introduction
Owner/administrator of  Tornado Quest (online since March, 1998) and its associated social media, citizen scientist, scientific method advocate, pragmatic humanist, freethinker, and earth science fanatic. I'm a major league weather geek (and yes, I'm a storm chaser and Skywarn spotter & have been since March, 1982) with particular interests in mesoscale meteorology, numerical weather prediction, climatology & climate change, storm damage surveys, environmental science, social ramifications & reactions to impending severe weather, and long-term social/psychological effects of major disasters on mental health. My other interests include being an avid recycler, sustainable living, and leaving this humble planet we live on a better place for future generations. My other interests include astronomy, evolutionary biology, paleontology, science education, art history, portrait, figure, and fine art photography, silent, foreign, & classic (pre-1960) films, KISS memorabilia, and online privacy/security issues. I'm quite adept with a 35mm or 120 film camera...and the bass guitar...the latter of which I love to play at high volume with sloppy, but good intentions.
Bragging rights
Proud father of planet Earth's most awesome daughter! She's my pride & joy, is headstrong, autonomous, creative, intelligent, pragmatically analytic, and graceful in her own unique way. Being a good "daddy" for her is the most important job I'll ever have. She takes after my wonderful wife Susan...who's the kind of woman who's never met an obstacle she didn't tackle by the horns.
