9th Annual Severe Symposium in Lawrence KS, and Storm Chasing Series Shelved

Shawna and I will both be speaking at the 9th Annual Severe Weather Symposium in Lawrence, Kansas this Saturday 3/21/09. The Symposium will be held from 7:30a - 1:00p at the Lawrence Arts Center, 940 New Hampshire St. in Lawrence. Here's the web site.

Shawna's talk will be about how storm chasers can help with first response, and also educate those in their local communities about severe weather awareness. I'll be doing a talk about the tornadoes in Kansas and Iowa on June 11, 2008.

Some other news... The storm chasing series that was to be broadcast this spring has apparently been shelved or cancelled by network executives. Shawna and I were to be in a couple episodes, but it now looks like it won't be aired. Such is the uncertainty of TV :-(.

Hope to see some people at the Symposium on Saturday.
