Watcha’ doing? Me, I’m sitting.
I’m on a ‘bar height’ office chair in the Weather Center looking at the radar. My own desk on the other side of the room has been unused today. There’s a Severe Thunderstorm Warning for Litchfield County (a marginal call when issued) which will certainly be allowed to expire in six minutes.
On nights like tonight I’m more like a life guard than anything else–even the high chair! I’m just sitting, gazing out at the action hoping nothing happens, but prepared just in case something does.
I’m answering to three separate news outlets: FoxCT, CTNow.com and the Hartford Courant. Each operates separately, but shares some resources (like me). It keeps me on my toes.
I just walked back to Master Control to let them know the “crawl” will disappear at 5:45 PM. I don’t have the number or I would have called. That’s something I need to learn.
I don’t know numbers. I don’t always know names. I am just learning procedures or in some cases helping to formulate them.
The storms are weakening. That’s good.
