Sky Watch Friday ~~ Storm a coming

The Storm Wednesday evening February 6, 2008 ~~~~~~~~~
Several years ago while doing research for a technical education site, I happened on this site,
The Storm. Check it out, rather awesome.
~~
One of our three lesson plans is hyper linked below. One Unit we called “Weathering New Heights” See I have always Punned ;) All quite boring unless you are in education… Lesson 1: 'Weather' or Not, Is it Climate or Weather?
Now for the Music… Yanni—The Storm
~~~
Yanni (born Yiannis Hrysomallis ( Pronounced Chrysomallis ), Greek: Γιάννης Χρυσομάλλης, on November 14, 1954 in Kalamata, Greece) is a self-taught pianist, keyboardist, and composer. Yanni left his homeland at the age of 18 to attend the University of Minnesota.
Background on Yanni ~~~~~~~~~~~
Here is how to join in: Sky Watch Friday

I really love the effort you put into all your post D, there is always a great feast laid out for our eyes, music for our ears as well. I'm sure if a computer could transmit a smell you'd have bread baking for all who call here.
