Our home track, Sacramento Raceway, may be going the way of the dodo

By Jennifer on April 7th, 2017 in Main News

A couple of weeks ago we learned that our home track, Sacramento Raceway, in Sacramento, CA may be shutting down very soon. The track was grandfathered into zoning that allowed a race track but that was set to expire in 2020. The owners have now put the land up for sale but any transfer of ownership will negate the special status the track received.

We will be very sad to see this track go. Bob, Jennifer, and many others in the local racing community will miss this track greatly.

A Facebook group has been set up. Hopefully we will, at least, be able to finish out the 2017 racing season. For the time being, if you would like to see the current and forecasted weather we have on our site, click below:

Conversely, how often have you looked outside thinking there is about to be a downpour only to have the clouds part and the sun appear? There is a lot of science behind weather forecasting but it is complicated and not easy to get right all the time. If you learn how to interpret a few of the variables, it will help you to be better prepared for sudden weather changes.

Why is it hottest a couple hours after noon? Why is it coldest a couple hours after dawn?

By Jennifer on February 19th, 2017 in Info and Education, Main News

At any given point on earth, solar noon is when the sun is most directly overhead. So why is it not also the hottest part of the day? In the absence of weather fronts to influence the temperature, the hottest part of the day is typically a couple of hours after noon.

In a similar fashion, the coldest part of the day should be right before dawn but it's not. in the absence of weather fronts, the coldest part of the day is an hour or two after sunrise. Why is that?
