It's been really busy lately, but I had a chance to catch up with my nephew last week. Wade continues to grow and each time I see him, I'm amazed at what he's doing and learning. Millie enjoys his entertainment too, and that's why she's being pushed in the laundry basket.
I'm visiting Madison learning some new weather equipment that Storm Team 12 will be using very soon. The weather up here is cold needless to say. Temperatures are in the teens with about 4 inches of snow on the ground. I was truly amazed (although I shouldn't be) at how much of the area is completely white. However, unlike in Kansas, the wind isn't blowing, so it actually doesn't feel that cold. Another system is coming through this week, so the area will get more rain or snow.
Our weather looks very quiet this week. We should see a turn for an active weather pattern next week to start the month of March. We can only hope that a system will provide some much needed rainfall soon. I'm not an expert on winter wheat, but the top soil is very dry and with the warm weather we are getting, it is trying to grow. I know southwest Kansas is probably the driest area in the state, so let's hope for some kind of precipitation soon. Even if you don't like snow, it sure would be nice to get something before we get into spring.
By the way, storm spotter meetings are going on around Kansas. If you want to know a date and time for one closest to you, just post a comment and I'll respond. Or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
