A New Look to My Shift

2016-02-29 17:23:56.000 – Mike Carmon, Co-Director of Summit Operations

 

There’s been a lot of change on the summit in recent weeks, which has essentially transformed my shift into a completely new look.

Adam Gill, who started as a fall intern on my shift back in August of 2015, and was then promoted to temporary observer upon the departure of Michael Kyle in November, has come on board full-time as the new night observer on this shift! You’ll hear Adam’s voice in the mornings on visitor information radio, NHPR, and you’ll see his excellent forecasting skills on display on our website every morning while we’re on shift.

With Adam’s promotion to a full-time weather observer, we required a new intern to take his place. We were happy to welcome back Mike Wessler for the winter internship, who had a short summit internship last winter with MWO. Mike hails from Plymouth State University, and has proven to be an asset to the shift after only a few short weeks on the summit. You’ll hear Mike’s voice on visitor information radio in the evenings, as well as on our website.

While we wish Mike W could stay on with us indefinitely, his internship will be up in early May. This paves the way for our summer interns! If you’re interested in a summer internship on Mount Washington, head here to fill out an application. But don’t wait too long—the deadline is coming up in less than a week on March 5th!
