On this beautiful first Saturday of February my thoughts are already turning toward the upcoming chase trips to the Great Plains. Dave will be getting more information out as the time draws nearer but I wanted to jump in here and promote the Google Hangouts (recorded on YouTube) regarding several previous Hokie Stormchase trips. Check out one or more of these Hangouts (full disclosure: they are posted on my YouTube page) if you want to hear about
– What a trip is like from the students’ perspective or
– Favorite websites that prior student chasers have used in forecasting storms or
– How the trip leaders view events of the 2013 second trip.
And as a BTW we may be conducting a Google Hangout before each of this year’s trips to go over some of the expectations and details. (More to follow on that later in the semester.)
Meanwhile the clock is ticking….
