Wacky Weather Day - Gary England
Today we’re grabbing our rain jackets, umbrellas, and bathing suits! Nothing is crazier than Oklahoma weather right?? Especially this week! Today’s theme is inspired by Oklahoma Hall of Fame Member Gary England. His hometown is Seiling, Oklahoma. England got degrees in math and meteorology from the University of Oklahoma and went on to become one of the most successful meteorologists. He also invented several tools and systems used in meteorology today, such as the Doppler radar and many others. England has assisted in many areas, authored a book, and received awards for his work! You can learn more by reading Gary England’s Oklahoma Hall of Fame biography.
Gary England was even in the movie Twister that was filmed right here in Oklahoma! They filmed the movie at Kaw Lake, Stillwater, Guthrie, and more.
