Observers Unite!

Monday morning began with 2 absentees. First Sharon, our Museum Attendant, was not feeling well and decided to go down the mountain. Then Stacey, our Educational Observer, changed shifts and today was her last day with us. One position on our decreasing roster was filled though, by Bill, the Observatory’s Retail Manager who will join us until Sharon is hopefully well on Wednesday. Nonetheless, things felt a little different throughout the course of the day. Brian was alone while Peter and I worked the museum. Many songs went unsung by our iStacey. We all had to work a bit harder to make the day, especially the observations, flow while still working on many other projects. As much as I like the boys up here, I feel a little out numbered 1 to 6. However we make do on the summit and while we still notice the absent crew, we continue with our work. We do have something keeping us together though. Al, our volunteer for the week, brought us bracelets made by his daughter. We all got one and took a picture last night, but Sharon was asleep already so her bracelet is not included. The comments about our ObsCast are also boosting spirits today. We spent the last week working on and perfecting it and I think it really shows. If you have not watched yet, please do! I think you will be just as impressed with the crew up here as I am. Now you enjoy the ObsCast and we’ll get back to the weather.
