Field Pass Podcast: Weathering the DCI Tour

by Dan Potter

The thermostat gets turned up on the DCI Summer Tour this week as corps invade the baked earth of the Lone Star State. Texas is known for its weather extremes and, as we hear in today's Field Pass, more than ever before DCI is ready for whatever the forces of nature throw at us. Dan Potter talks with Dr. Kevin Kloesel, meteorologist at the University of Oklahoma's Office of Emergency Preparedness and DCI executive director Dan Acheson.
