One of my "Weather Places" under the gun tomorrow

By: myweathershop , 3:14 AM GMT on June 03, 2014

I have several "weather places" in my life. By that, I don't mean places that have the ultimate spectacular climate per say, but places that I have a connection to. For me it might be the Cascade mountains of Washington State, where I spent many summer days at my grandparents' house. Or it could be the humid East Coast of Virginia, where my first two children were born. Sochi Russia, the subtropical resort of last February's Winter Olympics, is another since I lived in the area 20 years before it became known to the Western world.

Tomorrow, another "weather place", Ames, Iowa is under the gun with a moderate risk of severe weather. I grew up there and my parents still live there. I Mother Nature puts on a good show, but keeps everyone out of harm's way.

I'm just curious if other people have "weather places" that they check up on from time to time?

The Weather in My Backyard

I grew up in awe of the powerful thunderstorms that rolled across the Great Plains. I now live in the Rockies but experience my share of weather.
