I’m a weather geek…

I think I’ve up’d my Girl Geek quotient quite a bit tonight. I have become an officially trained Skywarn storm spotter.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a fascination with weather. I was terrified of storms as a kid, yet, they intrigued me.  As I got older, I became the kid that watched the news, waiting in anticipation for the weather report. And as I grew into adulthood, I was the girl that could watch The Weather Channel all day long.

Along the way, I’ve learned the lingo, how to differentiate between the different cloud types, and even how to identify certain features on a weather map and radar.

So imagine my delight when, about 3 weeks ago, across my Twitter feed came a tweet from WEWS News Channel 5 that the National Weather Service in Cleveland would be offering Skywarn training for amateur spotters in my area.  Of course I signed up!

So tonight at Lakeland Community College, I completed my training and received my very authoritative-looking Skywarn spotter card complete with my spotter ID on it 🙂

So..when the snow FINALLY quits falling in Cleveland, and April showers usher in May flowers – watch out thunderstorms – Kristin’s reporting for duty!

  1. Hi, Nice to read your blog. Didn’t manage all of it but good.Was searching the t’internet to find info on ileostomy bag for my husband who has one (4 months ago) and feels low and fed up. Lost his rag today (don’t blame him) but now he is depressed. Seems like you have your protion to bear. God bless you. My Husband is not spritual, sometimes I think it makes his life harder.
    His bag is only fluid and not toothpaste and he feels tired. So he is worried. But he is lucky as he can have a reversal.
    Good luck to you.
    This is like the starnger on the train phenomenon. 🙂
