A message from our President:
From winter storms to severe storms and hurricanes, we in the weather enterprise track tempests traversing the landscape. The prospect of a powerful low pressure system brings high pressure to our lives. That pressure can create anxiety and stress, with stress being both mental and physical.
At work, have you been told to do less? Ha ha, I know the answer! Let’s laugh together at that as laughter is a good stress-reliever. Do you want to laugh some more? Have you been given shorter work hours and a raise? Okay, stop laughing. It seems that all of us work harder and juggle more tasks than ever. For a meteorologist, just creating an accurate and precise forecast or assessment on schedule can be stressful.
Big weather events are even more worrisome. We are under high pressure to perform. It may be long hours and many days of preparation and/or recovery. Storm impact can be costly, tragic, and deadly. If disaster follows, how might you handle it?... READ MORE
