Great to be Back!

Well I had been away from the summit for a month and I can’t even put into words how excited I am to be back up here. I had taken a vacation from the internship for a family reunion down in Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia. Unfortunately the way it works with the two crews switching weeks on and off, if you take a week off, you are off of the mountain for three weeks. Then when you add an additional week to switch shifts it’s a long 4 week vacation.

Speaking of switching shifts, I have spent the summer on Ryan Knapp, Mike Dorfman and Kaitlyn O’ Brien’s shift but now I will be with Mike Carmon, Mike Kyle and Tom Padham. I was lucky enough to have been allowed to stay on the summit for the fall internship which will run until December. I have seen some pretty incredible weather this summer, but with the winter approaching, the extremes that I have seen thus far will only be getting more extreme.

This internship has been such a tremendous experience and I can’t wait to continue it with my new shift. This is obviously a major learning opportunity for me, as I acquired this internship to gain experience and knowledge in all facets of meteorology. I learned a lot from my previous shift, and now I look forward to continue learning more with my new shift.
