Long ago, as a music undergrad at the University of Nebraska begrudgingly fulfilling the degree requirement for science courses, I was surprised to find myself really enjoying a course in meteorology. I discovered just how fascinating weather and atmospheric phenomena can be.
Well, everyday there is something new to discover. And today, thanks to a volcano in Iceland and Minnesota Public Radio's Updraft blog, I learned about a most impressive weather wonder. Volcanic lightning! Very volcanic! Very Wagnerian!
Music and meteorology may actually go together better than you think.
