Here comes winter!

My part of the U.S. has been experiencing anomalously high temperatures for December and January. All of that changes today. A cold front is sweeping into the region and the temperature is plummeting. With wind chill, we’re expected to hit single- or low-double-digit temperatures tonight and tomorrow. Winter has finally arrived!

This is not expected to persist below freezing for long periods of time, which means (for now) we should avoid the conditions that led to last winter’s Texas weather disaster.

I am a husband, son, and a Professor of Physics at Southern Methodist University. Physics may be my favorite thing to do, but I like to do a little bit of everything: writing, running, biking, hiking, drumming, gardening, carpentry, computer programming, painting, drawing, eating and sleeping. I earned a Ph.D. in Physics in 2004 from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, I teach courses in physics and the scientific method at SMU, and I love to spend time with my family. All things written in here are my own, unless otherwise attributed; don't you go blaming my employer or my family for me.
