Being the weather geek that she is, Mom is constantly monitoring her 10-million weather apps on her iPhone and checks in to see what the local meteorologists and storm chasers are saying on FaceBook. If there are storms in the area, we often do this:
|Me, helping my mom storm watch|
Yep. Head out on the deck and watch the storm blow in! Check out the storm from a couple weeks ago:
Pretty cool, huh? Keep watching, it got better!
We asked the rain to go to Texas to help out our friends who need the rain even more than we do (parts of Kansas are in a drought, but not where we are... we're just "low") - but it wasn't listening. In fact, it not only didn't go to Texas, it didn't even give us any rain!
We did get some loud thunder boomers and a cool light show, though. You can see how excited I got about the whole thing.
And that's my storm watching how-to. I hope you enjoyed it!
