Farewell

October 6, 2012; 5:00 PM ET

So this is it. Counting this entry, I have written exactly 250 entries in this blog over the course of about 5 years. This will be my last entry.

Where am I going now? Well, not too far in the short term. Since I moved to New Hampshire and the Mount Washington Valley I have grown quite fond of the area, and I'd like to stick around. Also, I'll be getting married next September, in New Hampshire, so there's certainly no reason to leave between now and then. So this winter, I will be working at a local ski shop in North Conway, NH and teaching at Attitash Mountain Resort in nearby Bartlett, NH. At the same time, I will be starting my own business which will involve computer repair, support, consultation, and education. I have some other ideas for my future too, some of which of course involve my career in the field of meteorology.

As far as this blog is concerned, I'm not sure exactly what will happen to it. That will be up to the Observatory and AccuWeather.com. My hope is that it will continue, and that another member of the summit crew can take it over and bring a fresh perspective to it, as well as a fresh ideas to write about.

Thank you to the Observatory and to AccuWeather.com for giving me the opportunity to contribute to this blog. Thank you to you as readers for giving me someone to write to. I hope you've enjoyed reading it as much as I have writing it.

One last thing before I go. Remember that the Mount Washington Observatory is a private, non-profit, member supported organization. We are not part of the National Weather Service, and we are not supported by any sector of the government. Most of our funding comes from members as well corporate sponsors. I truly believe that the work that we do as a non-profit in the areas of science, education, and research is extremely important. So do me a favor; consider becoming a member and supporting the organization that has given so much to me, and so much to so many people. You can get more information about the Observatory, as well as membership information (including the benefits!) from our website at www.mountwashington.org.

Farewell.
