A real-time wind map of the US. Pretty cool.

An invisible, ancient source of energy surrounds us—energy that powered the first explorations of the world, and that may be a key to the future.

This map shows you the delicate tracery of wind flowing over the US right now.

Pretty cool, though I note that it's not technically "real-time" data - it's forecast data updated once per hour. Still, it's neat to see the general patterns across the map.

You can really see what makes the midwest "Tornado Alley"....

Along those lines... here's a global mapping of the Earth's ocean currents:

Finally, scientific proof that the wind blows in Missouri because Iowa (and Nebraska) sucks and Arkansas blows. Interesting.

I just had four bean salad for lunch. I expect the wind pattern to change across Kansas in the next hour or so....
