WeatherBrains 241: Mounds Fail!

WeatherBrains Episode 241 is now online (September 7, 2010). If you are crazy about weather, this is THE netcast audio program for you!

WeatherBrains - September 7, 2010

Bonar Menninger, authorTonight’s Guest WeatherBrain is Bonar Menninger, a native of Topeka, KS, but now lives in Mission KS, just outside Kansas City. He is a writer with a degree in Journalism from the University of Kansas. He has done investigative reporting for the Kansas City Business Journal and the Washington D.C. Business Journal, plus he has written for several other publications. His 1992 book, Mortal Error: The Shot That Killed Kennedy, was published by St. Martin’s Press in 1992. His new book, And Hell Followed With It, is a fascinating account of the tornado that hit Topeka in 1966.

Other discussions in this weekly podcast include topics like:

  • three Sneaky Pete’s hot dogs, a diet Buffalo Rock ginger ale, two bananas and a partial bowl of fruit
  • Kevin actually working as depression Hermine moves through Texas
  • Tropics relatively active as Hermine brings rain to Texas as it moves northward
  • Weather warnings across Texas from Hermine
  • Remnants of Gaston still defined as it moves westward followed by two more disturbances
  • Major wildfires near Boulder, CO
  • Worst flooding in Pakistan and drought in Russia
  • What is so unusual about the Bay of Fundi?
  • and more!
  • Our mail bag gets the attention of our email officer Kevin. In fact, the box is overflowing but weather keeps him from all of them! Comments are always welcome.

    From The Weather Center:

    WeatherBrains 101:My good friend, Paul Prance, author of the iPhone/iPad app, wxRadar, asked me a question about radar. So this week we take a look at ground clutter. What is it, does it really hinder radar interpretation, and much more to answer the question about this topic.

    TWIWH: Bill Murray looks back at the week of September 7th. This week featured the country’s worst natural disaster at Galveston, TX.
