Starting my new job.....

For those of you who don't know, I took a job at the Boulder-Denver National Weather Service Office as an Incident Meteorologist (IMET), where I become an onsite meteorologist for such things as wildfires, oil/chemical spills, and other various incidents. I have gone on a couple other training fires about 2 years ago, but still need some more training to be completely signed off. I was called to a wildfire in California about 2 weeks ago, where I stayed for about a week. Almost certified! Click on the picture below to see scenes from my time down south of Monterey!

Right on girl, you look hard core. Glad to have you closer, but now we have to plan a trip.

See you soon. Still in Fl for 2 more weeks.

Hey Miss Lisa,

Sorry I missed your call while you were in Monterey. I was at a dance competitions in SF. The competitions were all day Saturday and then I social danced until 5 am. By the time I woke up on Sunday and heard your message, you would have been gone. But the good news is that I made it to Semi-Finals out of 93 women!

I'm so glad you're finally getting to go out on fires. I always wanted to go on a fire when I was a Fire Wx Met way way long ago. I won't say HOW long. ;-) Anyway, I checked out the YouTube video of the Indian Fire firewhirl. That was AWESOME!
Take Care!
