Midland is just outside of Tornado Alley, but we still got our fair amount of tornado scares and severe storms tearing through the city. To think I used to be terrified of thunder as a child, sent scurrying to my parent's room in the middle of the night, and now, I can't wait to go searching for the storms. As I grew older and learned more about meteorological processes, I became less afraid of the loud noises from the sky and more fascinated with them.
I am excited to apply the knowledge and practical skills I learned this year to the field
Rather than hearing or reading of an impending storm like I have been all semester, I get to venture into the heart of it. I'm excited to travel with an amazing group and see some of what Mother Nature has in store!
