I’m on a necessary two week road trip to meteorology related trade shows to show some of my technology and content. Unfortunately times being what they are, the trip was more economical with me driving and hauling equipment than it was to fly and ship. I’m now beginning to question that decision after my 13 hour drive from LA to Albuquerque today. On the plus side, I got to see the section of I-40 that was the inspiration for the fictional town “Radiator Springs” in the Disney animated movie “Cars”. The wind sculpted terrain was right out of the movie as I passed into New Mexico.
But even though I’m away from blogging a lot, every cloud has a silver lining. There’s a 5 day lapse between the two shows, and I’m going to use that time to fill in some missing stations for the surfacestations project if I can.
Our first paper on the station surveys is in late stage peer review, and I hope to be able to announce it soon. This work would go towards a second paper being planned. I can’t go into any more detail on it at this time.
But if anyone can help with the road trip expenses for those 5 days, there’s an orange donate button on the right sidebar.
Of course I’ll post the station surveys as I get them, there’s bound to be an entertaining BBQ or a/c unit somewhere in the mix next to a climate monitoring station.
Evan Jones has been providing planning support, and I thank him for his preparation in getting candidates cataloged. As you can see in one of my previous trips, I’m a glutton for punishment.
Guest authors with ideas are encouraged to submit stories while I’m chasing stations.
