Come Join the Fun
Wow!!! This is my first time on the blog and I learned more about meteorology and weather reading this than I have in the past 45 years [referring to Matt Ross's "Where's All the Snow?" feature]. This could become addictive.

Thanks Lester, you've captured perfectly what we're trying to accomplish with our new blog. We hope you continue to find our content addictive, and if it gets stale, let us know.
I'm new to this blog but there is some definitely interesting stuff here. I'm a local Washingtonian who loves when it snows...
Welcome, Laura. As a snow lover, you're in good company here.
Lester and Laura were among several new visitors who bravely posted comments this week. At our old site, (CapitalWeather.com), we had an active community of commenters, most of whom have migrated with us here. They've gotten to know each other, share a deep interest in all things weather and love chatting about it.
So if you're new here and reading comments inside our posts for the first time, please don't feel intimidated by some of the weather wonk jargon being tossed around. You don't have to be a weatherman to know which way...
Seriously, we have an open door policy at the Capital Weather Gang and it's a big door. It welcomes visitors from all directions, and all levels of knowledge, and there's room inside for everyone. We also encourage you to tell us what you like about the blog and what improvements you'd like to see. (Veteran visitors: we know you miss certain features from the old site; we'll address as many of those as we can in the coming weeks...).
So who else here is new? Or who is not a new reader, but someone who traditionally lurks? Don't be shy. This blog is for everyone and our comment boards are our lifeblood. Veterans: You are our bread and butter; keep commenting, giving us feedback and making us vibrant and strong. But please also welcome new commenters with open arms. Our very high confidence forecast is that they will enrich our community.
