Sunny Skies Ahead

Week two began with a staff retreat where both shifts and even the valley staff came up to the summit to attend a day-long developmental staff meeting. Even though we are a small non-profit, like any organization, there is always room for improvement. We discovered different ways to communicate as well as when each mode of communication is appropriate. We also learned and practiced these new communication skills through small group discussions. It was an educational and fun experience and I will definitely try to implement the techniques I learned in both my work and personal experiences.
As far as the weather is concerned, I am still amazed by everything. We’ve been pretty much socked into the fog for the past few days with the winds staying relatively calm until yesterday when they picked up a bit and even gusted to 60mph at 10:25pm last night! This afternoon we will be clearing and temperatures will be warming into the lower 50s! We’ll be performing some upkeep duties at the Observatory this afternoon and tonight, so that type of weather will be perfect! Tomorrow looks to be clear with highs back in the 50s. Caleb and I are planning to take advantage of that weather with a hike down the mountain, possibly to Lake of the Clouds.
