WeatherBrains Episode 315 is now online (February 7, 2012). If you are crazy about weather, this is THE netcast audio program for you!
Kory Hartman is the CEO at SevereStudios, a site that is familiar to everyone on this show. He also recently joined the weather staff at KSFY in Sioux Falls as a weekend meteorologist and webmaster. Any other time, it would be a joy to have him on the show because of his excellent work, but it’s with a heavy heart that we speak with him tonight.
Accomplished Storm Chaser and Severe Studios partner Andy Gabrielson was tragically killed in a traffic accident on the Turner Turnpike near Sapulpa OK Saturday afternoon. The driver that caused the accidents was driving on the wrong side of the interstate and crashed head on into Andy’s Tahoe. Authorities said they believed alcohol was a factor.
Andy was a partner with Kory in Severe Studios, and Kory joins us tonight from his home in South Dakota.
