Live in Richmond VA. I'm a recent high school graduate who is looking to pursue a career in meteorology. Winter storms and the tropics fascinate me.

Unfortunately,Chris Sligh,one of my favorite singers on American Idol got voted off wednesday night.He was from greenville,SC and he was a bit chubby.We got through to vote for Chris more than a dozen times!The only person to vote for that i like is Chris Richardson,who is from Chesapeake,VA.Y'all should keep voting for him!If he makes it to the final 2,or he won,I'll thank y'all.Sanjaya needs to go home to his family.The reasons why he was never in the bottom 2 or 3 is because of that dumb vote for the worst site,and everybody on that site is voting for him!Not only that but it's also because he's young,17 years old!Don't vote for Sanjaya!Please!
Keep voting for Chris richardson!

Let's go back last year on American Idol.Elliot Yamin and Chris Daughtery were the best vocals.Elliot Yamin got voted off after being in the top 3 which were Taylor Hicks,Kathrine McPhee,and you know who.Elliot deserved to win American Idol.But instead,hicks won just of because of his obnoxious dancing.For example:On one show he was shaking his rear end like crazy while he was singing.Another show he danced with Paula which was pretty rediculous.He never deserved to win because he was a terrible vocal.Elliot Yamin lives as you probably know,in Richmond,VA,where I live.Here are some videos of him

Last night was the very first thunderstorm of the season.The first rumble of thunder of the season was at 5 til 10pm.However,the southeast saw the worst.Tornadoes spwned from SW GA,to SE AL.The hardest hit area was in enterprise AL,about 20 miles west of dothan.20 people were killed.Others were injured.I wouldn't count out winter yet,we could face a big snow hopefully before the end of winter.
