RV life – a quick science lesson about climate and a building heatwave

As we approach the July 4 holiday weekend, still a few days away, I trust you are enjoying your RV Life wherever you are!

While this post is relevant to all; it is particularly relevant to RV’ers! You see, we are so connected with our surroundings just beyond the (thin) walls of our traveling home, it is hard not to be connected with the environment!

So, whether you’re enjoying the rv life or just preparing for some downtime from your “bricks and sticks” home,  as we approach a holiday weekend, I would like to share a brief science lesson on climate, astronomical patterns, and share some news about the current weather pattern that is impacting the United States.

In my video I share a quick science lesson. Hey my 20+ years as an educator has to come out occasionally!  My video explains why temperatures are still rising across North America, and statistically when (and why) they begin to drop – in a few weeks.

I also introduce how the current weather pattern will create potentially extreme heat across much of the interior West, and very, very “tropical” conditions all along the Eastern seaboard, east of the Appalachian Mountains. I then leave it to an Accu-Weather page where they do an outstanding job explaining the developing weather pattern – here at the end of June 2013.

RV Life – and the Science of Climatic Patterns – and a Building Heatwave

Here is the Accu-Weather page – with a video of their own that explains the current weather pattern quite well.
