4. 22nd Annual Severe Weather Symposium

Well, it’s mid-Winter again, which means it’s time for me to hype the 22nd Annual Severe Weather Symposium.  Sponsored by the Meteorology Club at The Ohio State University, this annual event is free and open to all agesPresenters cover a wide variety of severe weather topics.  Some are quite general and easy to follow, while others are highly technical scientific research. 
This year’s symposium is scheduled for Friday, March 9, 2018 from 9AM to 5 PM.  The location is the US Bank Conference Theater, Ohio Union, 1739 North High Street, Columbus, Ohio.  Parking can be an issue, so the recommended option is the South Garage.  Located just north of the Ohio Union, it offers 800 visitor spaces at $13 for the entire day.  Attendees may pack a lunch, dine within the Union or eat at one of several nearby restaurants.  In addition to these expenses, there are usually a few symposium related goodies available for purchase.
