Back From Vacation

2012-10-24 18:59:16.000 – Rebecca Scholand,  Weather Observer/Education Specialist


Well I am back on the summit after my vacation and ready for winter. The past few weeks I have been calling Long Island home where I have been relaxing. Although my definition of relaxing took me through 11 states, a river, numerous beaches, a old live fire military range, and involved every form of transportation I am back and feeling refreshed. I visited with friends and made new ones along the way all while never feeling too far from the Observatory.

On one particular instance I was on the Outer Banks of North Carolina enjoying the evening with friends at a restaurant when our waiter noticed my wallet. Now on my wallet is a sticker with the outline of Maine. The waiter quickly asked if I was from Maine and when I said no I am from North Conway, New Hampshire his eyes lit up. He then proceeded to tell me all about skiing and hiking in Tuckerman Ravine. When I informed him I worked at the Observatory he almost jumped with excitement. Turns out he is a member and fan of the Observatory!

It really is a small world!
