I remain incredulous toward my ongoing saga with the maintenance staff.

Picture a lovely, turn of the 20th century tudor-style mansion. Picture this mansion turned a'la-frat. And now picture this mansion turned into a small dormitory. Understandably so, given its age and location (yes, the northwestern-most Lake Cayuga bluff is probably not the most ideal for insulation), my residential hall is probably not t...

Operational Forecasting Techniques for the February 5-6 Winter Storm

To create a weather forecast requires the use of an infinite amount of data and guidance. With the technological advances over the last decade, meteorologists can now predict weather forecasts with a reasonable accuracy in a two week or so lead time. This is a remarkable advance in the atmospheric sciences community. However, there are times when the bas...
