As i mentioned in an entry 2 blogs back, Stephanie and I are going to a Weather Spotter class put on for free by WYMT-TV and the N.O.A.A. weather staff from Jackson ,Ky.
Our county is in dire need of weather spotters, weather spotters aren’t the same as storm chasers. Although i would not be opposed if offered a job as a storm chaser, storms really don’t bother me so and i have enough sense to find shelter when things get out of control.
This class will teach us how to spot potentially dangerous weather conditions that could lead to flash floods, damaging winds and tornados as well as how to predict the best time to share that data in real time with NOAA weather radio and the media.
This class is for two hours and i hear there is a rumor of a cook out afterwards, we go at 9 am tomorrow morning. I am excited to say the least, weather is another one of my hobbies. And who knows, maybe i can work out some kind of deal where i can carry WYMT-TV weather on Blue Bucket Radio.
I will be taking a recorder with me, actually it’s an app on my old Android phone called voice recorder, the same app we recorded the Storm episode of The Little Things Radio show when our power was out for a week.
If all goes well i will share audio snippets from what i record, there will be some videos for us to watch so i probably wont be recording those.
I’ll let you all know.
