Cars

So after an extended shift break it’s back to work and my oh my how everything has changed. Winter is no more – in our absence the auto road opened to cars, the cog started running on the weekends and the building opened its doors to the public. The summit museum is also up and running and Deb is back for the season. Just to add to the excitement we have a new intern and to cap it all off Stacey is away on vacation.

The biggest change to have occurred though is the removal of the Cosmo shack earlier this week. It is very strange stepping outside and seeing this big empty space where it used to live. This building was a great place to shelter behind when using the sling psychrometer. It really made working in -20 temperatures with howling winds bearable. It’s like an old friend has gone.

And to finish off I would like to remind everyone about our Annual General Meeting which will be held at the AMC Highland Center on Saturday, June 12th. It should be a really great event and I’ve heard they’ll be some good food too!
