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.”

Episode #098: Finger Lake Effect

Anyone who understands how lake effect snow is generated by the atmosphere might be tempted to say that a relatively small or skinny lake could not be the source of lake effect snow. However, if the conditions are just right (like they were this morning), it can happen!

Episode #097: The Amazing Pine Tree

How is it that we never seem to see pine tree branches break off under the pressure of very heavy snow while other trees are easily damaged or even killed when the weight of snow takes out huge branches? Let’s take a closer look at the amazing pine tree of the northern U.S. states.

Here is the weather segment to which I made reference:
