Greetings everyone! I hope all of you are having a great week and, if you were impacted by the recent winter storm across much of the eastern half of the USA, I hope you had no troubles or are seeing a light at the end of the tunnel. Since we’ve many more weeks of winter ahead, we’ll continue our winter weather safety information. But first, there are many other interesting science links to check out. Let’s get started.
- The Hubble telescope may not be the latest and greatest, but it still can stun us with it’s amazing imagery.
- Groundhog Day gets its share of publicity, but is there really anything to its accuracy?
- This makes perfectly good sense especially in light of the fact that trees in urban settings help improve the quality of air you breathe.
- We still don’t fully understand all of the properties of water and ice. Discoveries like this just help us understand even more this critical building block of life.
- Microplastics are a problem the world over in water and on land, but just how are they affecting you when they become airborne?
- Here is the latest update on the USA Drought Monitor. Recent precipitation has brought some improvements even to California in the wake of several significant storm systems. East of the Mississippi river, conditions have improved significantly while parts of the central and southern plains still have extreme or exceptional drought conditions.
WINTER WEATHER PREPAREDNESS AND SAFETY
- If you’re looking for winter weather preparedness and safety information, here’s an excellent website for everything you need to know for before and after the storm. This all inclusive website from NOAA and the National Weather Service will help you prepare for the storm and tell you how to stay safe afterwards. Here’s some more winter safety information from OSHA geared towards those who have to work outdoors in the cold. The infographics have tips on dressing for the cold and five things to keep in mind during the coldest months of the year.
That’s a wrap for this post! Thanks to everyone for stopping by. A big ‘Thank You’ to all of you who pay this website a visit and follow Tornado Quest in social media!
