MM’s Wx Concerns
Almanac for Yesterday
On This Day in Wx History
1940 – The Galloping Gertie bridge at Tacoma, Washington, collapsed in strong winds resulting in a six million dollar loss, just four months after the grand opening of the new bridge. The winds caused the evenly sized spans of the bridge to begin to vibrate until the central one finally collapsed. From that point on bridges were constructed with spans of varying size. The Youtube video below shows the collapse. We studied this a LOT in my first semester of physics at Western.
Yesterday’s National Temperature Extremes
High: 93° at both Coolidge & Fountain Hills, Arizona
Low: 7° at Davis, West Virginia
Registration is now open for the next MM Kids class! The class will be Tuesday, November 9, at 4:30 at TCAT. The topic will be the demise of the dinos, with an emphasis on the climate impact. That registration form can be found at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfIdzapON8bwzN22C1ub1XN9CXbJn84xcDMYH10IUFRs8ZchQ/viewform. A cool hands-on activity will be included, of course! I have room for a couple more students.
An email list has been created for those who wish to be notified by email when a MM Kid’s class is being offered. If you have had a child in my classes before you may have received an email stating that you are on the list. If you would like to be added to the list, let me know by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
