Summary

Today is the Crossville Fly-In & Open House! It’s from 9-5:00 and features all kinds of aircraft, food vendors, and more! It’s a perfect weather day, so come on out!

Speaking of perfect weather…if it weren’t so dry we could really, really enjoy this sunshine. At least the growing season has slowed down enough to where agriculture isn’t affected as much as if this drought were in the springtime.

Just look for hot and humid days, with an isolated afternoon/evening storm. This trend will continue through the better part of next week.

Today’s WeatherTAP WeatherWORD

Indian Summer

A period of unseasonably warm weather that occurs in autumn, following a killing frost.

WeatherTAP WeatherFACT

The term “Indian Summer” dates back to the 1770s. It is believed that the term comes from the hazy conditions in autumn when Native Americans hunted.

NASA Knowledge

I have good news! Our sun can never become a black hole! (ha) Our sun is actually too small to ever become a black hole. It would need to be about 20 times bigger. Extremely large stars explode into a supernova and then collapse into a black hole, an object with a gravitational pull so strong that not even light can escape.

In about five billion years, our sun will begin running out of fuel. The sun’s temperature will increase and the outer layers will expand, even engulfing Earth.

News

Yesterday afternoon the B-17 Flying Fortress fly right over weatherTAP! A lady we work with knew the pilot and he assured her he would fly right over Trade-A-Plane. Some of us went out on the roof and watched it fly over. What a sight!

For those of you who don’t know, weatherTAP was born from Trade-A-Plane. That’s where the TAP part of weatherTAP comes from. WeatherTAP turned 21 years old this year.

You all wish me luck. Though totally unprepared, I might just tackle the Loop the Lake Tansi run this morning. Eight miles.

I’ve ran four full marathons in my life, one of which (and only one) that I was totally unprepared for. It’s true. It was awful, miserable, painful, etc. It’s a long story, but I was very irritated with myself for making excuses during training. I got up that morning and drove to Nashville to run the race. At the finish line, I told myself that this is what it feels like to make excuses for why you can’t do something. Lesson learned.

So, after that, everything else seems mundane. haha

You all have a great Saturday!
