The Definition of Raw - Plowable Snow Up North. The same storm responsible for windswept rain in the Twin Cities will mix with a fresh surge of Canadian air to whip up some 4-8 inch snow totals for the North Shore. Perhaps, but snow in March is hardly newsworthy at this latitude. On this date in 1917 the metro area was pasted with 9 inches of fresh snow. A cold rain tapers to showers today as winds gust to 40 mph. A little slush can't be ruled out on metro lawns, but by the time surface temperatures fall below 32F (. Retrograding Storm. Another wave of moisture approaches from the north today as a vertical storm temporarily.

org)—A trio of researchers with the University of Louisiana at Lafayette has found that contrary to folklore, vipers are not the clear champions when it comes to how fast they can strike. In their paper published in the journal Biology Letters , David Penning, Baxter Sawvel and Brad Moon described a study they carried out with three types of snakes and high speed video cameras, and what they learned by doing so. . Everyone knows... But, the research trio wanted to know, is the viper strike really faster than other kinds of snakes. To find out, they obtained three snakes: a western diamond-backed rattlesnake, a western cottonmouth and a Texas ratsnake.

The PITTA is 3 in 1: Drone, Handheld Action-Cam, and Security Camera

For many of us, drones weren’t the first camera-equipped gadgets in our lives. Everyone’s journey is personal. For me, it started with a MiniDV camera before it came to DSRLs, and eventually, the surprising need to buy a Go-Pro. It was only thereafter that the fixation on drones—4K capable cameras that could also actually fly—began to take hold. Even though we all have smartphones in our pockets and are ready to snap a photo in a second’s notice, it’s always bugged me that the high definition...
