I've forgotten a very important blog ethic by failing to add any links to these posts. Chalk it up to lack of sleep. I'll make the first one to my chase partner Jeff Lawson's stormchase blog. He's the first chaser that I know of to use a blog for chase-related accounts and updates, and the trend is spreading fast. The flagship of stormchaser media, Stormtrack Magazine, is now blogging on their front page, as well as my friends in Florida, the tornado and hurricane chasing outfit known as Weathervine.
As well, the link to my main stormchase page leads to all the accounts and picture of chases past. But none of that history matters now. It's all about the next four weeks.
At the moment, it looks like some of the pressure is off concerning this
weekend, at least in terms of distance. Friday looks very weak and
Saturday's setup in in SE Kansas, which is closer to Indiana than north
Texas, obviously. So it's not as important that I drive deep into the night
Friday. That helps some. Today I have to fax UNT to send more transcripts
to the IU English Department for my transfer hours, then mail some letters,
take out the trash, and, at some point, it would be really nice to get a
Walt just puked on the carpet in the living, so that's waiting for me. Of
course, right after doing that, he comes into the office and looks at me as
if I'm neglecting him by not filling the food bowl yet this morning. Class
is at 3:30, so I should get going.
