Professors Ng and Landolt and the SCAMS officers organized a lovely evening for us on Thursday! They invited Dr. Lixion Avila to come speak. He is a senior hurricane specialist from the National Hurricane Center in Miami. He gave a lively talk about his job as a forecaster and about 50 of our meteorology students and several National Weather Service guests joined us for the talk. I have never seen a room so animated with questions! Several of the students and myself made goodies for the talk. I made two dozen hurricane cupcakes, which were a big hit. Thanks to all who came out!
