Hello there. Long time no speak. It’s been well over four months since I last published some sort of relevant post on here. Long story short, my summer was a thrilling/busy/exciting tiring/amazing one. I was a intern with the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs baseball team working in creative services. I could go on and on about the times that were had, but you have no time and neither do I.
I’m still with the Crabs as the community relations coordinator now, and with offseason upon us, I can give this site some attention it’s earned.
I gave this site a little facelift and will be trimming some ‘fat’ off it, making it what it’s been meant to be all along: Simple. Facebook and Twitter will get brought back up again. Forecasts will hope to become more frequent and dead air less frequent. I’m working towards gaining a few folks to work along side on the site as well, we’ll get to that eventually.
With that said, one item I’d like to discuss in the winter. I have full expectation to do normal forecasts for winter events, however I am on the fence about a seasonal forecast. MWC suffered a hit in ‘staffing’ I guess you could say as Mark Gonzalez moved on to sunny Florida as the summer started. He is well and has continued his love for forecasting on his new Facebook page.
Mark had the long term forecasting knack down. It was great and it’s what MWC has had its foundation set on around Thanksgiving every year. We ditched the forecast for outlooks about two years ago because we didn’t want to put a flag in the ground with a “HEY LOOK THIS WILL HAPPEN!” kind of mentality. Weather does not work like that, it changes, it moves, it flows and doesn’t give a second thought to a blog’s forecast. The outlook was a snapshot as to what things were looking like at that moment. Just pure relay of what the data was saying, nothing more or less. This year with Mark gone, we’re changing it all. No choice, honestly.
We’ll post what some other reliable weather outlets think about the winter ahead, but for us its day-to-day forecasting we’ll stick to, with peeks as to what the models are saying near term.
I’m posting this purley to hit “refresh” on a page and site that needs it. Those who have been following us for years are the best and you guys have deserved at least one more push at keeping this thing alive and well.
Thanks for the support. – Josh
