Jessica Bliss Nashville Tennessean Published 7:58 p.m. UTC Jul 15, 2018 Levi Hughes wore his life jacket almost all day. When he was swimming in Gulf of Mexico. While flying his kite on the beach. Even when eating M&Ms for a snack. When the 3-year-old sat down for dinner on a June night almost one month ago, slurping up Spaghetti-Os on the balcony of his family's vacation house, Levi finally took off his floaty. There seemed no reason to have it on. No warning of the tragedy to come. Levi and his two older sisters were on an annual summer trip, traveling from Tennessee with their parents to meet their closest friends. There were six families staying together at adjoining duplexes in Fort Morgan, Ala., that week — 12 adults and 17 children. All the dads on the trip were physicians, buddies who completed their residencies together. The day had been filled with sun, sand and satisfaction. As the adults cleaned up after dinner that night, the … [Read more...] about Devastating drowning of 3-year-old inspires Tennessee mom to create ‘water guardian’ tag

The Gulf of Mexico's dead zone is bigger than ever. Recent surveys put it at an enormous 8,776 square miles, large enough to cover New Jersey. But another massive zone of low dissolved oxygen confirmed recently in the Arabian Sea is seven times larger. At 63,000 square miles -- the size of Florida -- it ranks as the world's largest. Scientists from the University of East Anglia of Norwich, England measured the dead zone, which sits in the Gulf of Oman south of Iran, with underwater robots. The area had been suspected of hosting a massive dead zone, but roving bands of pirates and the region's volatile geopolitics made research difficult. The torpedo-shaped robots were able to slip in and do the measurements with ease, but they came back with very bad news. "The Arabian Sea is the largest and thickest dead zone in the world," said Bastien Queste, a marine biochemist and the study's lead author. "But until now, no one really knew how bad the situation was because … [Read more...] about World’s largest ‘dead zone’ discovered, and it’s not in the Gulf of Mexico

We Are All Going To Need Some Weather Therapy The reason I bring this up: our tortured April has the entire state in need of emergency therapy. Looking at the weather maps I don't know whether to laugh or weep. Winds will gust over 40 mph, creating blizzard conditions south/west of the metro area Saturday. Never tell a Minnesotan not to travel, but personally, I'd have a Plan B for Saturday. 40s return next week; a sun angle similar to late August melts most of the snow by midweek. I'm sorry. Follow the Trends. Yesterday afternoon the local NWS office was going with 7" in the Twin Cities. They have progressively increased this over time as models appear to come into rough alignment with the axis of heaviest snow. Spaghetti Plot. Earlier model runs were clustering in the 6-10" range for the Twin Cities. 00z runs from Thursday evening were showing considerably higher amounts; well over a foot for MSP. Source: Iowa State. Ice Storm Potential. The best chance of sleet and glaze ice will … [Read more...] about Friday the 13th coincidence: Up to a foot of snow in mid-April?
