Summer Classes

By: Astrometeor, 9:48 PM GMT on July 11, 2016

New blog time.

Today is July 11th, and I am starting two summer classes today, History of Meteorology and Imperial Russia. I will be sticking to these two courses for the next month. I just finished my reading yesterday, 1,000 pages of Russian history and 100 pages of Meteorology in Railroading.

In other news, I have convinced my mother to teach me how to use her older Pentax camera, so I will be taking that camera with me to Millersville in the fall, as I learn photography, something every weather nerd should do. :)

On Saturday, July 16th, my family and I will be traveling up to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, amongst other locales such as the Mackinac Bridge, for an extended vacation. I have been missing from the blog in recent days, due to the heavy reading for the Russian class, and tasks around the house and town. I will be missing more time with the trip to Michigan and summer classwork.

The last week has had impressive thunderstorms and rain, my CoCoRaHS gauge has logged 3" already for July, most of that coming in a 4-hour span on July 7. July 6-8 we lost multiple small and medium sized branches, and one storm even had an impressive shelf cloud associated with it (no picture, sorry). More information on these weather events has been cataloged by the local NWS office here in Nashville:
Major Flash Flooding
Severe Storms

That's all for now, if I have anything else to add, I will add it to the blog entry. Thanks!
