Hello Friends

Brian here. We’re going to try to get into a little bit of a regular schedule now that we’re all cooped up inside our houses for the most part until some indeterminate time in the future. We’ll be doing Storm Advisories a couple of times per week, with some other stuff scheduled as well. But we are very open to ideas, so if there’s something you’d like to see from us, leave it in the comments and we’ll see what we can do. Stay safe and healthy, and we’ll get through this...eventually.
