It’s Spring!

Tomorrow we officially kick of spring at 6:21 pm! Unfortunately this week is going to feel more like winter than spring.  We will see more 30s than 40s and even snow back in the forecast! If you are curious about what the Spring equinox is you can check out my blog post from last year. […]

Total Lunar Eclipse Kicks off Winter!

You may think I am crazy, but we are actually not officially in winter.  With the bitterly cold days we saw this week, it is hard to believe.  Some places dropped down to 20 below which is just astonishing to think of in mid December.  A typical mid December day is in the mid 20′s […]

Looking at the Stars Inside

Good morning! It has been funny this morning watching the major networks talk about the arctic cold.  All over twitter and facebook I have seen folks in Alabama, Florida, the Carolinas complaining about freezing temps! I guess when you live in Wisconsin we are prepared even though this is not exactly what we should be […]

Tropics are Heating Up

Not one, not two but maybe three…. yes we are watching three areas in the Tropics.  It was a slow start to the Hurricane season but like I mentioned earlier this week Sept is usually the most active month and there is still a good chance to see more storms fire up.  As of right […]

Will We See the Stars?

First I added a new question to my “Have you ever wondered series”  This one is on the topic of drizzle versus rain. If you ever wanted to know the difference check it out! Brian posted an article earlier this week but I just want to remind people that the Perseid’s meteor shower will be […]

Hubble Turns 20!!!

Finally some rainfall! I was reading Justin’s earlier post about the fact that rain comes sometimes when we don’t want it aka the weekends.  I have to admit I like the sunshine but the rain is so needed in this area that I can take a few rainy days for the better good of everyone.  […]

Water on the Moon, Ida Ruins East Coast

From New Jersey to the Carolina’s Ida’s remnants have brought havoc for many days but we are finally seeing some improvement as the storm begins to head out to sea.  Some of the reports were up to 70 mph winds in Norfolk, half of the sand gone from the beach in Virginia Beach and waves up […]

It has been a couple weeks since I last looked at the U.S. Drought Monitor. Given that we have had nearly zero precipitation since then, you would think the drought situation would have gotten much worse. So far it hasn’t, but I expect this recent dry spell to show up big time in the drought […]

Private Space Flight Follow-Up

I like doing follow-ups. Most stories require at least one follow-up but it seems we get less and less of them (especially in political reporting). I like to follow space news not only for the scientific aspects of discovery and analysis (such as atmospheric properties of other planets) but also because of a natural sense of […]

Rain Coming?, Germany Crash and Space Walk

The good news….we have numerous rain chances over the next few days…  the bad news…it doesn’t look like we will see an excessive amount of rain with the storms. Considering that we haven’t seen more than .17″ here in Wausau we could really use precip in the area.  Looking at the stats to this point… […]
