Meet Pete! He's the intern for the Canute Storm Chaser team and he will be blogging his experiences every day starting today through June 30! Read his blog at www.stormchaserpete.blogspot.com for the latest updates.
Pete doesn't have a lot of experience chasing storms, but he's dreamed about this exciting adventure since was a kid. Securing a summer internship as a storm chaser is definitely the opportunity of a lifetime! Although Pete's enthusiastic about chasing storms, there's a lot of behind the scenes work he has to do before he's ready for the real thing. From getting coffee for the team in the morning to driving the Doppler truck, Pete has quite few adventures and misadventures along the way. Make sure you check the Storm Chaser Pete blog every day for a new post!

Nancy Drew: Trail of the Twister is fast approaching and we want to make sure everyone is well aware of the upcoming storm!
We're working on a microsite for Trail of the Twister themed around the Canute Meteorology Department. It's meant to be an educational website about tornados that you might see for a school department. There's information about the equipment they use, the lingo they speak, biographies for the team members, and even a section to join the team. You'll find some of this information in the actual game, but our microsites are designed to give you a peek into the universe of the game beyond the actual story and gameplay.
Canute is pretty serious about its research so there isn't a whole lot of extras such as wallpapers or downloads on the website, but they are interested in prospective students who have a passion for meteorology to join the team. The website will feature a simulator to test if fans have what it takes to make good decisions in the middle of a storm chase. Will you be able to pass the test and become a storm chaser?
Find out on Thursday at www.TrailOfTheTwister.com!
Growing up, I would always beg my mom to buy me the Nancy Drew books from the Scholastic catalog. She never really liked these books and wished that I would read classic literature instead. But if I did well in school, she would reward me with one book for the quarter. My sister and I both made sure we studied hard so we could attempt to collect all of the books in the Nancy Drew series. Although we were never able to collect all the books, we did have about 20 or so between the two of us that we read over and over again. I have to thank for my mom for encouraging us to get good grades and read more, even if it wasn't Swiss Family Robinson or Huckleberry Finn. She always supported us in our decisions and made sure we had everything we needed.
This weekend, remember to spend time with your Mom and let her know how much you appreciate all the things she's done for you. You could start a new tradition by playing a Nancy Drew game together. If she hasn't played a Nancy Drew PC game before, we suggest starting with the Nancy Drew Dossier series or this month's special, Secret of the Old Clock, which is on sale for just $14.99. Please join us this weekend in thanking moms around the world for their unconditional love and inspiration!
