We’ve been learning a lot about weather lately. The Waterloo Region Museum has an interactive wild weather exhibit where you can get yourself sucked up in a tornado. Devon had hours of fun pretending to fly away:
“Again, again,” he said each time the interactive tornado stopped spinning him around.
The weather is getting wilder, the exhibit seemed to suggest. We didn’t have a lot of time to figure out the details because Devon was rushing from one possible disaster to the next, but it almost seems like his generation will have it pretty rough.
To prepare him for the future climate apocalypse, we installed a weather station in our yard this weekend. It tracks wind speeds and everything else.
“We can keep an eye on tornadoes,” Devon said. Except he pronounces tornadoes the same way as tomatoes, which makes them sounds less dreadful.
