National Weather Festival 2010

Posted in General News at 1:59 pm by Rebekah

The National Weather Festival, an annual event at the National Weather Center in Norman, Oklahoma, will take place tomorrow from 9 am to 1 pm.

I’ll be there with my chase car (entered in the storm chaser car show), and I’ll also have a booth inside with DVDs, prints, calendars, and T-shirts for sale. I’ll also have some free pens and storm chasing brochures.

I’ve been spending a lot of time preparing for this lately, hence the lack of blog posts this week.

Between the demonstrations (e.g., balloon launches), tours of the building and research vehicles, storm chaser car show, prizes, booths with weather info and vendors, etc., the National Weather Festival is always a lot of fun. Last year I believe there were around 5,000 people who showed up!

Here’s a link with more info: www.nationalweatherfestival.org

As an aside, there will also be fireworks tomorrow night in Norman, as part of a Vietnam Veterans’ celebration. These will be the fireworks saved from the 4th of July, after that fireworks show was rained out.
