Apparently, when you’re rich and smart, there is no limit to what you (think you) can do. Let’s take Mr. Bill Gates for example. Gates is responsible for the multi-million dollar Microsoft Corporation and just came up with another idea. This Microsoft founder wants to become a…wait for it…“hurricane slayer.”

Fla. weather reminds NASA who’s boss

andrea @ July 15, 2009 # No Comment Yet

Anyone who’s been to “sunny Florida” during the summertime is aware of the precipitation level. Having grown up in Florida, I feel it’s safe to say that it rains here just about every day during the summer, even if the sun is out.

andrea @ June 27, 2009 # No Comment Yet

For those who have never been near the Florida Everglades, let me tell you something, you’re not missing anything special. It’s humid, hot and infested with mosquitoes.

andrea @ June 14, 2009 # No Comment Yet

Tornadoes have provided for some great cinema magic (i.e. “The Wizard of Oz”) but have also provided for many deaths and serious devastation. Severe weather investigators have been trying for years to determine what causes twisters to form. Luckily for them, on June 6, a tornado in Wyoming became the most documented twister of all […]
