Back to a Full Shift

2018-06-12 18:26:50.000 – Adam Gill, Weather Observer/IT Specialist


After several months of being down a person after Mike Carmon left and then with Caleb’s departure, we are back to a full shift! It is quite a relief now that summer is in full swing and we need to have everyone on board to be able to keep up with all the task and tours. Ian and Chris were both former interns from the summers of 2015 and 2016. It is great to have them back on board full time! We also had our final summer Intern, Emily, start as well so we are up to 9 people staying overnight!

Things will be quite busy over the next few weeks on my shift as everyone gets trained up. So far everyone has done an excellent job of learning their duties as well as all the Interns making great progress on their summer research projects. Overall this last week was very quiet weather wise with a little bit of precipitation early on but clear conditions since. It looks like some more exciting weather arrives tomorrow just in time for shift change!
