SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT: Cool, Blustery Storm #2 for ThursdayApril 6th, 2010 by Matthew Leach
This is a very brief blog post from me. I’ve been busier than ever preparing for my mission trip in less than a month, so I’ve been pretty preoccupied. Regardless, you need to know of up-to-the-minute severe weather updates so I must learn how to juggle the two! I haven’t had a lot of time to do research on the latest in a series of storms pegged for Thursday, so until I do, I think the National Weather Service’s SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT will do for now
