Vienna waits for you...

Slow down, you crazy child
and take the phone off the hook and disappear for awhile
it's all right, you can afford to lose a day or two
When will you realize,..Vienna waits for you?

In case you don't hear from me for a while, I will be at the European Geophysical Union General Assembly next week. I have three talks at the EGU:

  • Baroclinic development within zonally varying flow (with Fuqing Zhang)
  • What causes mammatus? (with Kathy Kanak and Jerry Straka)
  • Decision making by Austin, Texas, residents in hypothetical tornado scenarios (with Eve Gruntfest, Chip Benight, Sheldon Drobot, Lindsey Barnes, and Mary Hayden)

    I am also session chair for the Dynamic Meteorology poster session.

    Finally, Prof. Markku Kulmala (see photo) of the University of Helsinki will be receiving the Vilhelm Bjerknes Medal for his research on atmospheric aerosols. This is quite an honor! (This was Markku skiing earlier this month.)

    After the conference, I will be taking five days off in Austria. No plans yet. Just will keep an open schedule.

    And you know that when the truth is told
    that you can get what you want or you can just get old
    You're gonna kick off before you even get half through
    Why don't you realize,. Vienna waits for you
    When will you realize, Vienna waits for you?

    Lyrics from "Vienna" by Billy Joel from The Stranger
