Weather Day at the Brewers game

We took a field trip with Namine’s school to a Brewer game.

We spent the day at a Brewers game, thanks to Namine’s school. It wasn’t just any game; it was Weather Day, so the morning was dedicated to presentations and learning about weather and disaster preparation.

Before all that could begin, however, we had to get there. Namine had an email from her school instructing her (and us) to meet at “the restaurant to be named later.” We assumed this meant that they would specify, at a later, date, which restaurant at which to meet. They never did, and we found out when we arrived that that was the restaurant’s name.

As soon as we entered the stadium, we saw the racing sausages.

There were a fair amount of presentations and speeches by weather persons on the dangers (and excitement) of inclement weather. There was a particularly strong emphasis on tornadoes, with good reason: Wisconsin is among the states with the highest chance of tornadoes in the United States.

There was also a station for students to pick up some swag — Namine got a wristband — and try out some weather-related experiments.

Before we knew it, it was time for the game to begin. Of course, we had to get our nacho helmet, as is our tradition at baseball games.

On our way out, we stopped at the Brewers Wall of Honor.
