I am a little ahead of schedule today. I came in around 9AM to get my forecast started and most of my graphics made for the show. I left a little after 10AM to head to Columbus to watch my brother, Bryant graduate from The Ohio State University. It has been three years since I graduated from there and it is was much cooler today than what it was in 2008. This year they had nearly 10,000 students graduating... crazily impressive and the largest graduating class in the world from what we were told. The entire ceremony lasted just about two hours with everyone coming in and all the PhD and Masters students getting their names read as they shook hands with President Gee. He briefly reflected on the recent turmoil with the football program but reminded people of the past great players and how hopefully this will only be a small blemish in the tradition and heritage that is Buckeye Football.
Dawn and I met up with Bryant briefly before heading back to Dayton...we also ran across my grandparents there as well who came up from Cincinnati. Bryant will have a bright future with his degree in Chemical Engineering... he has three job offers on the table right now, likely making a LOT more money than me, haha. Luckily we were sitting in the shade at graduation. With the low humidity the sunshine and UV rays cut through the atmosphere much better and it does not take long to get a sunburn on a day like today. It is not nearly as big of a problem for me, but Dawn's Irish skin burns under a 100W bulb. Anyway, I am back in the weather center getting as much done early so I can hopefully watch the Mavs win the NBA finals tonight.
Not much change in the forecast...cool and low humidity to start the workweek, then we slowly warm up and slowly add more moisture to the air with scattered showers and storms possible Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Have a good one!
