Last night, as most of you probably know, some nasty tornadoes went through Atlanta doing some severe damage. More tornadoes are coming through today doing incredible damage just north of us. Luckily we have been spared so far.
At 10:30 last night we had to take the kids down into the basement while the tornadoes passed. As we sat in the basement and watched the radar on my laptop Ben asked, "Is radar like satellite?" I explained that radar towers are on the ground instead of in space. "How tall are radar towers?" "How do they work?" So there we sat, huddled in the basement, watching an online demonstration of how weather radar works. :-) Isn't technology great!
