Sorry for the lack of updates for the last week and a half here or so. Here the BreweryReviewery household, things have been a bit crazy since my last update. I will also start this post out by saying that the updates are coming, but probably not till this time next week. The reasons are many, but it mostly boils down into two things.
The first is that my wife just defended her thesis on Friday and I basically stayed away from her during that time so that she could finish everything up. She did pass and will officially soon have her Masters in Atmospheric Science. Going along with the whole weather thing, I was out chasing tornadoes with the grad and PhD students of Texas Tech. Is this something that I would normally do, no. But going with a bunch of smart people who know what they are doing and are trying to improve warning times and structures made me feel a bit safe. I did get to see four tornadoes on Thursday. And no, they didn’t do any damage other than to some fields. And second no that real storm chasing is not like what it is on the Discovery Channel.
The second reason goes back into the whole tornado thing. My wife is part of Vortex2 along with the rest of Texas Tech and a couple of hundred other scientist. She leaves soon and, being that I didn’t get to see her much while she was finishing up her thesis, I kind of, sort of, want to spend time with her now. So I am taking a quick break from the site to enjoy some time with my wife (and puppy) before she (my wife not the dog) head out for six weeks to study tornadoes.
A few other side-notes. I have now experienced tornadoes and a earthquake. That leaves an erupting volcano (I saw one but it wasn’t doing anything fun), a hurricane, and a tsunami as my last natural disasters to see before I die. Is that a weird goal? The puppy, Maggie, is one today. And is it alright to call a dog a puppy past one? I’ll be back soon with lots of new content here soon.
