“That painting could use more concrete, a building, and an air conditioner next to the SS, and it would be perfect.” – your wish is my command…

In a couple of days, I’m heading off to a week long road trip. This road trip is something that you, my faithful readers have made possible through generous donations when I asked for some help a few weeks ago. I thank you, each and every one, who donated to make this trip possible.
The trip has two purposes:
1) To meet with a top tier climate oriented organization (at the directors invitation) to have a sit down meeting about the www.surfacestations.org project.
2) To get as many USHCN stations surveyed as possible while I’m on this trip, I’m spending 5 additional days driving cross country to visit stations. I’ve spent weeks planning this route to maximize station visits.
I have not revealed who the individual is or the organization is yet, and I’ll save that for the day I’m actually there. I don’t want the person who invited me to be lobbied in advance. Let me just say that this is a significant meeting with opportunity to bridge some chasms that have developed.
While I’m on the road, updates may be spotty. I’ll do my best to keep you all informed on what transpires during Anthony’s excellent adventure.
In other news, I’m preparing my Stevenson Screen Paint Experiment for a second data logging run at a different location. I was not happy wit the location used last year due to some tree shading issues, and I’ve found another location that is better. I want to be sure that what I observed last year in the data is truly repeatable and is not in any way location dependent.
