May 7, 2010: Storms today – Alaska soon – Europe for summer!

Well, it is almost my birthday and that means thunderstorms!  Usually.  No different this year.  Severe thunderstorms are likely today across our region – not a huge outbreak, but a line of storms.  Expect gusty winds and some high winds.

Dry tomorrow and most of Sunday.  Heavy rain possible Sunday night into next week.  On and off chances – won’t rain all the time.  We don’t need any rain.

The region is still cleaning up from a huge flood over the last few weeks.  Parts of Kentucky and Tennessee will likely have damage in the BILLIONS of dollars.  Terrible flood. 

We will be leaving for Alaska in a few weeks.  Taking my mother – we are going with Jason and Jess.  Should be a nice trip.  Hope the weather is okay.  Prob be some cool nights and warm days.

We are going to Stockholm, Sweden in July – then Berlin at the end of July and first part of August.  Going to explore and see what we can discover over there!  No real plans – just go and explore.  Hopefully the volcano won’t blow up.  🙂  Airlines don’t mix well with volcanic ash.  (I had to bring science in there somewhere)

We are going to try something different – in Sweden at least – renting an apartment instead of staying at a hotel.  Julie got us hooked on www.homeaway.com 🙂  Will give it a try and see what happens.  An adventure I am sure!!!!

Need to figure out when we can make it up to Canada to visit Doug and others.  Maybe later in the summer or fall.

Art Appreciation class will start in a few weeks – meteorology classes start next week.  Signed up for another class in the fall.  That will leave me just two classes away from the Bachelors Degree in Geo-Science.  🙂

So – some busy weeks ahead of us.  Hopefully we don’t get too much severe weather in the coming weeks.  Would be nice just to slide into summer without a huge severe weather event.  Will just have to see how it goes.
