From the Admins
Charlie Phillips, CEO – Portland, Ore.
We modified the look of the homepage by reducing the number of links in the main menu and adding these links to the footer, giving the site a cleaner appearance. We’ve made some really nice behind-the-scenes progress on our weather models and have substantially improved our “Weather 101” page, though much work remains on both these fronts. We’ve been fortunate to add three new blogs, and John Markle’s Salcha Basin, Alaska blog has really expanded our geographic reach.
Mark Ingalls, COO – Fernley, Nev.
WeatherTogether continues to grow in exciting ways. We’re always thrilled to see new bloggers join us, especially those from new regions like John from Alaska. Our social media presence increased this month as well, with several new people ‘liking’ the WeatherTogether Facebook page and a few new folks following us on Twitter where we post reports written by our bloggers. Beyond this, we were also able to start generating beautiful graphics thanks to a subscription to MetGraphics.
Nathan Parker, CIO – Hot Springs, Ark.
The WeatherQuack merge under WeatherTogether continued during November. All regular bloggers from WeatherQuack have successfully registered under WeatherTogether. All of the blog archives and remaining content from WeatherQuack has been merged under WeatherTogether, and the transition should be fully complete by December.
