This weblog is our first and something totally new for us at stormeyes.org. It’s also part of an ongoing redesign of the whole stormeyes site. We wanted something that would make it easier for us to share the fun and update friends of adventures from the road, in libraries or using our rather ancient little laptop. We’ll see how it goes. Mostly this blog will be used during the main storm season and perhaps the second season in fall — if we get a second season this year. We might add storm related posts at other times, too, but look for most of the activity to occur between March and July. Time permitting, I hope to initiate a personal weblog for other exercises in writing soon. We were blessed to make it out to Western Oklahoma and look at a couple of supercells back in March, on the 27th. This was such a good time! We managed to avoid the large hail and see a small brief tornado. Al Pietrycha gave us some nowcasting via the cell phone from northern climes – thanks, Alnado! We also ran into Rich Thompson and Corey Mead on the roadside, with whom we enjoyed a fine sunset, watching the last storm of the day trim painted sails and drift off to the east. We topped the day off in the best way possible – a steak dinner with Chuck & Vickie Doswell, together with Al Moller and others. It was a such a pleasure to see you all again! Our account is listed in the archive for March (more images to follow). It’s also here with lots more images and links. This weblog is made possible by a neat bit of freeware (for personal sites) called MoveableType. I’m still on a learning curve here with regards to content management systems, but excited to have the opportunity to dabble. Thanks for checking in with Roger and I. Hope we see you again real soon.
