I really hope you had a nice weekend and it was nice to have some dry weather (at least in eastern Kansas). I know there are several areas in the west that could use more moisture, and you'll have a chance this week. We are still in an active weather pattern that will bring some scattered activity to the area in the next few days.
I did drive back to see my parents on Thursday. The wheat is looking good between Wichita and Ellsworth, but I understand that when you get north of there, most of the wheat has been destroyed. The hail has been significant this year and it has left a mark on our state. I know some area farmers were cutting Sunday afternoon... you have to make hay when the sun shines and the chances for more storms this week have several people concerned.
I'm gearing up for a big weather conference in Denver this week. I'll try and post an entry or two while I'm taking in more weather knowledge, but I can't make any promises. We are touring a research facility in Boulder on Friday called UCAR (University Corporation for Atmospheric Research) Broadcasters from across the country will be learning about new discoveries in the world of weather and will be doing some training on new technology that we use almost everyday.
