weather or not...a scientific update

even though school ended here last week, the science continues...& thanks to Little Man, i am in the know!

today begins National Hurricane Preparedness Week! according to their website ...

"The goal of this Hurricane Preparedness Web site is to inform the public about the hurricane hazards and provide knowledge which can be used to take ACTION. This information can be used to save lives at work, home, while on the road, or on the water." so if you live in an area where hurricanes like to hang out, be sure to venture on over to NOAA's site & brush up on safety & preparation. (my only question is why do they not include chocolate in the preparation kit????) remember: hurricane season in the atlantic basin begins june 1.

(do you think it is any accident that Little Man's birthday falls during Hurricane Preparedness Week???...more on that later!)

today is not only the first day of Hurricane Preparedness Week, it is also the day that NASA's Phoenix Mars Lander lands on Mars (just like its name says~!)...touchdown is expected at 7:53 pm EDT. if you have the NASA channel on TV, you will be able to watch it. also the website will be covering it.

& finally at the end of this week, Little Man & i hope to be liveblogging the Space Shuttle Discovery launch from Kennedy Space Center, FL.

i believe i will just proclaim this to be Science Week here at casa piacere!...stay tuned for more...
