Thought I would share a picture of DH and the award he received on his trip to Helsinki the beginning of June. Chuck is a research scientist...a severe storms meteorologist and has been working with a group from the European Severe Storms Lab for about 10 years now to get a system set up similar to what we have here in the US. Actually better!!! Chuck worked closely with Nikolai Dotzek, a friend of his who was the head of the lab, advising and teaching at seminars etc in Germany. Unfortunately Nikolai passed away about 3 years ago from a heart attack at a young age leaving two young children and a wife. This award is honoring his commitment to the ESSL and the scientists who are leaders in the field. Chuck is the second recipient of the award and is so proud to have received it.
|it is hard to see but the award/trophy is actually a replica of a giant hail stone.|
I hope to be able to post some picture of the garden tomorrow so stay tuned! Have a great week and hope all my American friends have a happy and safe 4th of July!
