After three and a half weeks, it feels good to be back on the summit. Don’t get me wrong, the vacation was fantastic. In fact, I think it was the perfect vacation. I was never stressed, got to see lots of my friends and family, and I even went to the beach (you know it, the Jersey Shore!). The weather cooperated beautifully most days, encouraging me to go outside to canoe, to hike, and to bike. Experimenting with food (aka, cooking and eating) kept me busy for the rest of the time.
Finally, Tuesday came. Laundry, packing, the notion of new interns and seeing old friends had me pretty excited to come back to the place we all call home for half our lives. Nothing welcomes more than a practically windless day, sunny skies, hazy (smoky) views, and bugs – with a promise for rain, fog, and a light breeze!
My past two days have been deliciously busy, getting to know our newest additions, catching up with our museum attendant, remembering how to forecast and observe the weather, training the newest additions, and getting used to the idea that the summer season has officially arrived in my absence. Speaking of summer (typing, really), it’s time for the Annual Meeting for Members! Join us next weekend for dinner and presentations in Crawford Notch. Click here to purchase your ticket.
