Fairwell from a fall intern

2011-12-20 17:57:39.000 – Kevin Cronin,  Summit Intern


Tomorrow will be my last day on the summit. I can’t believe over 5 months have pass by since I’ve started. I have enjoyed the time spent here and I would encourage anyone interested in meteorology to experience the conditions for themselves. From 130 mile visibility to sustained winds above 100mph, the variability and abrupt changes have always amazed me. Personally experiencing these conditions on the summit has made me respect the mountain even more.

It’s great to have people care about the mountain as much as we do and support us through membership and volunteering their time. All of the volunteers have been extremely helpful. I also want to mention that every meal prepared by the volunteers or Mike have been awesome. Members of the observatory really make all the difference up here so I want to thank them for supporting this great cause. I want to thank everyone I’ve met in association with this organization and thank the staff for giving me this opportunity. I especially want to thank Mike, Rick and Steve for making a great atmosphere to work in.
