We’re having a typical mid-south spring weather day: mild temperatures of upper 70s, windy, a touch of humidity, and the seemingly ever-present severe thunderstorm alert. The current & ongoing flood situation and recent tornado here in the Memphis area, sparked an interest in meterology in general and storms in particular in both boys. We found these short videos from The Weather Channel called Tornado Minute. I didn’t know a green sky was a warning sign of hail and possible tornados. Growing up in Kansas, we watched for tornados on a fairly frequent basis and I don’t recall any green skies, although the atmosphere did take on a unique freakishness. Maybe I just missed that big GREEN clue during the excitment of spotting funnel clouds. 😉 Anyway, Tornado Minutes are short and informative….great fodder for hungry minds.
And now I leave you with this — just because it is pretty and very much unlike our weather today.
