January’s cold didn’t scare us from getting together for a club event as we decided to go ice skating at the OSU Ice Rink. We met at Derby Hall then walked down to the rink by St. John’s Arena. We enjoyed refreshing ourselves on how to skate (or learning for some of us) and spending time as a group. The second half of the night was even more fun when they turned the radio on and re-glazed the ice. Next year we look forward to skating again and maybe even taking a trip up to Mad River Mountain to ski and tube for the school discount night!

November, 2013

The meteorology club toured the Byrd Polar Research Center, learning how researchers analyze the ice cores, and viewing the massive collections of ice cores from around the world.

We also took a trip to the National Weather Service in Wilmington, Ohio. We first watched the 0000Z weather balloon launch and watched glow stick attached to it until it was out of site and above the clouds. We also toured the whole office and saw where the weather and river forecasts are produced and met some of the employees who make it all happen. We tracked our weather balloon and watched as the computer produced a SKEW-T. We were also lucky enough to watch radar and satellite analyses of the previous day’s severe weather outbreak! We hope to visit the Cleveland and Pittsburgh offices next year!

October, 2013

We went to the Haunted Hoochie house in Pataskala. On the way, we stopped for dinner then we hit up a café for coffee and hot chocolate. While the entrance line was long due to the popularity of the event and the temperatures freezing, we were able to brave the line and the cold. We took a scary group photo while we waited and discussed a game plan for making it out alive. The actual haunted house was quite scary, but we all made it out alive and laughed over what parts scared each of us the most. We look forward to scaring ourselves next year as we plan another trip to a haunted house!
