where’s the wind?

The weather hasn’t been anything to write home about, being stuck in the fog for the entire day and temperatures hovering in the upper thirties. Observations take all of thirty seconds and its not even windy outside – overall a boring weather day.

With the occasional snow and ice already visiting the summit, it’s that time of year when we start to prepare for the winter season. Today, with the light winds, was a perfect day to take out the summer screens and put in the winter windows.

Our volunteers and regular forum prowlers, Brad Bradstreet and Charlie Hawkins, have been on window duty this afternoon. They diligently worked and now we have an insulated weather room. This is great for the winter. However, with light winds and relatively warm temperatures, it is now ROASTING in the weather room. We’ve had to open the doors (windows won’t do any good any more) just to get some relief.

Even though it is only just fall, visions of snowflakes and winds dance in all of our heads (Honestly, this is what weather enthusiasts, or weather geeks, dream about).We are all getting antsy for the winter weather to arrive, and in the spirit of Mike’s comment, I want it to arrive on our shift!
