With a storm along the east coast making for the first Nor’easter of the season, heavy rain, gusty winds, and eroding waves has been the main talking points about the weather. As a meteorologist in a public arena, the weather takes on two forms. The obvious is sharing the weather and other vital information. The other is actually making the forecast. That part can be different for everyone, but it is always a learning process. Let’s be honest, we are not always right. Yup! I went there.
But I like to keep an open mind and the benefit of social media is involving everyone else to participate. With over 35,000 people on my Facebook page alone, I have reached 220,000 people in the past 7 days. That’s a lot of potential input.
After reading the responses and reports from many today, I wanted to share 10 things I have learned about the weather:
1. Monsooning is a verb
2. Cool weather is 'cool'
3. It was a good day to bake
4. It was a good day to clean
5. A lot of people are happy it feels like Fall
6. Many people already want snow AKA #Faith-in-the-Flakes
7. The storm has brought up aches. It's not just the 'grandma barometer' but old injuries.
8. The weather is 'yucky'. So I am glad I own the domain www.yuckyweather.com Now I need to figure out what to do with it. Really!
9. I feel bad for runners in the Baltimore Running Festival Saturday with chance of rain lingering. But I kind of feel a little better injuries are keeping me out of the race. Sorry.
10. Na-na-na-nah, Na-na-na-nah… Hey Stinkbugs- GOODBYE!
