Mid summer update

by Keith Stebbings

WAC is always planning over summer to introduce great new changes for the following winter season. Julian reported in May of a new WAC weather station installed and running at Salt Creek Summit (6100') making this station our third WAC owned and operated high elevation remote weather station. See:

As spring unfolded to summer WAC has been working hard soliciting applications for a newly created paid Director position. I'll be turning the day to day operational duties and lead forecaster reins over to an individual who will steer WAC toward the future with new vision, ideas and enthusiasm. We are considering several applicants for this lead role. By late summer we should be introducing a great new addition to our staff. I will continue my involvement on the Board and as President of the organization.

I'm hopeful you are enjoying your summer as much as I with all the great summer activities our region provides. I'm busy with cycling, kayaking, hiking, ocean sailing and visiting folks back east.

WAC is looking forward to serving you as we enter our 7th winter season.
