Wild Western Weather 2008 will be held on November 18th.
The channel 7 24 / 7 Weather Center has accounced an exciting event – Wild Western Weather 2008. The event will be held at the Wild Life Experience in Parker on Tuesday, November 18th from 6:00pm to 10:00pm. This looks to be a great event with a number of notable speakers.
Some of the highlights include:
Tim Samaras – Tornado Expert – featured in National Geographic Magazine, “Inside Tornadoes – The Latest Research: Twistex 2008”
Tony Laubach – Storm Chaser – “The Windsor Tornado vs Douglas County Landspouts”
Dr. Walt Lyons – Lightning Researcher – “Flash Facts – Red Sprites, Blue Jets and Other Rare Airities”
Ethan Green – Director, Colorado Avalanche Information Center – “Avalanches and the Big Snow Winter of 2007-08”
Dr. Thomas Schlatter – NOAA’s Earth System Research Lab and the University of Colorado – “The Pine Bark Beetle – A Canary for Climate Change?”
I do wish they had chosen a more central location for it or at least held the event on the weekend. It is pretty tough for anyone who works and lives north to try to make it down there.
