Winter Weather Terms, Updates, and Can Openers

p38 can opener and ration canThis week on the Disaster Podcast it’s time to discuss recent wintery weather trends. That also means it’s time to stump our meteorologist, Dan DePodwin. The wintery weather terms we try out on him include freezing fog, polar vortex, graupel, hoar frost, frost flower (ice ribbons or frost beards), and rime ice.

We shift gears and continue talking with Kevin Reiter about ways to stay prepared for wintery weather as a traveler. We discuss what to carry in the car or van when making long trips in the winter time.

Also on the show are preparedness expert Kevin Reiter, emergency management expert Becky DePodwin, Dr. Joe Holley from Paragon Medical Education Group, along with co-hosts Sam Bradley and Jamie Davis.
