"Hey guys, obviously I am not in the Weather Center this week. I am out here learning believe it or not out in sunny California. I am out near Lake Tahoe at a resort called Squaw Creek.
"The American Meteorological Society meeting here this week and we are going to be talking about all sorts of different things from satellite technology, to warning technology and I hope to bring back that knowledge and education back to NWFL. A beautiful location here. There is still some snow on the peaks in the distance there. We are also talking about right now I am at 6k ft. The peaks up there are more than 8-9k ft. Just a beautiful location.
"So obviously it is going to be a great week out here at Squaw Creek. Hopefully we are going to learn a lot and bring a lot of that knowledge back to NWFL. Obviously a trip like this is not cheap. I am very appreciative to be able to come. Don't worry, tell the bosses I am bring back plenty of trinkets. 2GB drives, some mints, and pens. I think it already paying off. " --Chris Smith
