Episode #106: 1816 – The Year Without A Summer

OK, so we’re forecasting a little wet snow this May weekend. Unusual? Yes. Rare? Not really. But what about seeing more snow in JUNE than in January or February? It happened… they year was 1816. It was the “Year Without A Summer.” But there’s an even more fascinating story to tell about one farmer in Vermont whose corn crop did not fail! Enjoy this trip back to the summer of 1816.

This is an image of Nathaniel Foster, a Massachusetts native who moved to northern Vermont after marrying a Vermont woman. What he did to keep his corn crop from failing was amazing in that unforgettable summer of cold and snow.

Courtesy of FindAGrave.com, here is Nathaniel’s obelisk marking the place where he is buried in Fairfield, Vermont.

Episode #105: Wind And Sky

I received a wonderful question from a listener regarding the seasonal difference in the sound of the wind. It’s an appropriate subject on this windy Monday with notable gusts generally between 30-40 m.p.h.

Tomorrow (April 14) is also another notable day. It’s “Look Up At The Sky Day!” I will be sharing some of my favorite sky photos (below) while we talk about the amazing advantages of discovering the sky above us.

Episode #104: Weather Segments From Home

Join me during a power walk as I go into some of the technical hurdles of what it takes to successfully pull off television weather segments from a remote location (in most cases, from our home offices!). Plus, I share some of the personal and family adjustments made to our routines in this season. Because I purpose to emerge on the other side of this as a better person, it’s no secret that some of my adjustments are faith-based.

Episode #103: The Sounds Of Flight

There is a certain kind of romance involved with airports. A good example comes from the foggy airport scene in the film, “Casablanca,” (“Here’s looking at you, kid.”). When I think of airports, I usually think of the adventure it leads to. If you have never had the opportunity to fly on a commercial flight for any reason (including fear of flying), then this episode is for you. I’ll take the mystery out of flight with the actual sounds of a flight I took recently. I’ll also tell you a few of my favorite airport stories from my youth. So, place your tray tables and seat backs in the upright position. We’ve been cleared for take off!

Episode #102: An Active Week

It will be a very active week in Ohio with the first half of the week staying above freezing, but the back half turns much colder with some snow. While the details are still several days away from getting sharp, I focus on the most likely period that will give NEOhio the greatest chance for accumulating snow. PLUS, I’ll have the latest on astronomer’s watch to see if Betelgeuse, the red giant in Orion, will go “supernova.”
