Museum Closed

Lonely Museum

As interns we have many responsibilities. These include assisting the observers with the hourly observations, doing research, giving tours, administrative tasks, and helping out in the museum.

Generally Deb, the museum attendant on my shift, and Sharon, the attendant on the other shift (except this week), would take care of the museum all morning. Around lunchtime I would head down and allow her to take a lunch break. When the weather was nice those lunch breaks seemed to last a bit longer. Then I would come back down at night and help restock the shelves and do some general clean up.

Yesterday we finished packing up the museum, since the building is now closed to the public. Everything that was up here is now down at the Weather Discovery Center for the winter months. It seems weird to look at how empty the museum is and to have some of my summit routine change so drastically. Just another signal that the fall is over and winter is upon us.

On a side note, another indicator winter is at the summit is the chilly temperatures and the arrival of more snow. The forecast calls for a few inches, and in my book, the more the better.
