Dangerous Weather
It was sad and scary to hear about the tornado deaths at the scout camp in Iowa tonight since our eldest son is off to Boy Scout camp for the summer. From the news reports, a scout leadership camp was underway so those scouts that were there would have been the best to handle the situation, assuming they were their troop leaders. I'm sure more details will be broadcast tomorrow and following days.

Our son is the Handicrafts Director at Many Point Scout Camp for the summer. He'll be there for 10 or 11 weeks, having a ball, but dangerous weather is always a concern. It's rare to go a full week at camp without at least one fairly severe storm - in a summer, the staff usually get hit quite a few times so they need to stay on guard.

Weather Hazards Training will be mandatory for at least 1 adult leader on every tour starting on January 1, 2009. The online training is available now and it would be a great idea to complete it as soon as you can - especially before your next trek, trip, or campout.
