The National Hurricane Center now has its own blog.  It appears to be well done and I am looking forward to this new tool.


I am very aware that my blog has evolved into mostly weather and a tiny bit of news about the Florida Sea Base.  I created this blog to keep people informed about program happenings, staff, captains, ways to make your visit easier and more fun, and yes, the weather.

So what happened?  Growth, to put it in a word.  We are at, some would argue exceeding, capacity.  I spend 60 to 70 hours a week working on administrating the scuba programs.  I may well be the most pale person on the Florida Sea Base staff.  If I am outside, there is usually a big problem.

I hope that I am making enough headway to get out of the office more in just a few weeks.  Maybe, just maybe, I will get a reprieve for good behavior.  Bear with me and I will do what I can to get back to providing some useful reading.


Yesterday afternoon I was chasing down a staff member to deliver his new phone and spotted Scuba Instructor Austen Potter, aka Mustang, working with his first PADI Open Water Diver students.


Austen is near the bottom, center.
