First off, my school (MLK) won 2nd place in the High School Division yesterday at Volunteer State Community College for the Science Olympiad Regional Competition, which means we will compete on April 12 at the state competition. So, go team! I won third place along with my partner in the event Dynamic Planet, which had a focus this year on glaciers. However, the test didn't cover much on climatic cycles, so I was unable to use all of my Weather Underground knowledge. The only question about the climate dealt with the Milankovitch cycle, and I know I got that question right.
Unfortunately, the middle schoolers got 4th place, which makes them an alternate to state. Being an alternate team means they only go if for some reason one of the top three is unable to. The MS half of MLK seemed to collect most of the medals amongst the two teams they sent...so unfortunate they can't go.
On to winter weather!
Massive and powerful winter storm moving across the nation right now, same storm that brought extremely heavy rain and mudslides to drought-stricken California.
Nashville is under a Winter Storm Warning and nearby Hopkinsville, KY is under an Ice Storm Warning. Massive and crippling storm this will be if the forecast holds true

Ice Storm Warning for Hopkinsville
I shall post updates whenever possible, and as the storm progresses and new information comes out. For those affected, remember this: The NWS comes first, then local news channels, then the blogs. Order of reliability. The blogs are good for up-to-the-second information, but you should always check with your local weatherman for the most concrete news.
Thanks for reading and please stay tuned to the weather. The next 48 hours will surely be interesting!
