Earlier this month I took a training class to become an official “weather spotter” for the National Weather Service!
It was a 2 hour class about everything weather. My new duties will kick in mostly in Winter, but in Summer as well when severe weather is forecasted.
The weather is different in my yard than it is just a block away. Fascinating!
Anyway, the next thing to go up will be a new weather station, right here by my “office”, and I’ll have VERY accurate weather reports for you in the future! -JAP-
