Central Plains Heat Breaks Records: Temperatures in Kansas towns hit 101, 102

Not much to say other than it was a hot weekend in Central and North Texas! Highs at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport on Saturday and Sunday: 99. Helping move my in-laws into their new Fort Worth home over the weekend: priceless! (It was cool … just not in a literal sense)

Tornado Terror: A half-century later, hearing “Udall” can still make meteorologists break into a cold sweat as a tornado slammed the Kansas town on May 25, 1955, killing 77 people and injuring 250. Full story

Monument to creationism sparks evolution debate

Lightning during Friday The 13th storm in north Fort Worth, Texas, taken May 13, 2005Lightning Strike Update: I have a small update to my Friday the 13th lightning strike post. Neighbors revealed to me that a home on our street was hit by lightning early Saturday morning the 14th, and all electronics were fried — even the air conditioner. Other homes had electronics zapped, including my next-door neighbor. I hope they all are able to replace their lost items quickly, especially my one neighbor! When we all first moved onto our street in 2003, a lightning strike on our street sparked a fire a few homes down from mine. Original post from Aug. 12, 2003 here
