There is a Shreveport cable TV channel that broadcasts the (live) video of the Shreveport radar and the audio of the NOAA weather radio station. When explaining why he knew he should go into meteorology, he said that when he was young, he would sometimes watch the channel even when there were no echoes, just for fun. While devising a spur-of-the-moment NCAA basketball pool, in the presence of at least 6 other people, 2 of which are the WWW board instigators, George explained that the winner of this pool would be the one with the "cumulus best record". The cumulative decision was to nominate him... From The Best and Worst of Everything, Parade Magazine, Sunday December 28, 1997, Page 10.
Initially from the Rocky Mountain News, "BEST EXPERIMENT"
"If you are caught without an umbrella when it starts to rain, will you stay drier by running to shelter instead of walking?
Thomas Peterson and Trevor Wallis, of Asheville, N.C., both climatologists, calculated that running made one 44% drier over 100 meters (about 328 feet).
To test their findings, they measured off a 100-meter course and waited for it to rain. They wore identical dry clothing that had been weighed before the test (they wear the same size) and wore plastic bags under their clothes to trap any water that might seep through. Peterson walked the course, while Wallis ran. Afterward, they weighed the clothes again. The result: Wallis' clothes were 40% drier.
Frankly, we'd take a cab."
The Safeway on Arapahoe Rd. in Boulder recently remodeled its produce section. On top of the display cases there are small speakers with strobe lights mounted on them. Just before the water spray (which supposedly keeps their vegetables fresh) begins, a very realistic sound of thunder comes from the speakers and the strobe lights flash. Its worth the trip to the store just to see this.
