First of all, I would like to apologize for the lack of entries over the last weeks. The reason for this is two fold.
First,...Interactive Weather has now expanded to 3 other Scripps Howard properties This is really reason for us to be proud, as several media outlets are struggling mightily, due in part to the economy, and many are experiencing numerous cutbacks. Interactive Weather continues to grow, and will likely soon be coast to coast.
Interactive Weather recently won a prestigious award for innovation in media, due mostly to the work of Nick Hollensbe, the "father" of the product. As you might imagine, this increase in daily product requires much more preparation time, so I decided to temporarily suspend the blog.
Secondly, during the "dog days" of rainy/hurricane season, often the only topic of weather conversation is a Tropical wave in some form of development, and I find it silly to overanalyze every computer model run on a system that will likely never get anywhere close to Florida.
During Hurricane Season, I visit several National Tropical sites daily, and it's often humorous to read the detailed blogs and analysis (after the fact) of a system that was 2500 miles from the United States,...and fizzled out 2 days later.
Bottom line, we safely made it through another hurricane season, and now that we have completed the expansion of Interactive Weather, (something none of us saw 12 months ago!), I will have more time for an occasional blog.
