Here's a historical tidbit about the team & this picture. Taken at Penn State in March 2013, everyone you see here, all of whom started out as high school forecasters, are now actual degreed meteorologists working either in industry, on television or at a research institution. 

So when will that be your story?

I also have a passion for science and weather but I barely get the time to explore more because I’m so indulged in my studies. Exam preparations and class tasks are fine but when it comes to assigning the home tasks, like long essays then it becomes a headache. My friend has suggested me an essay assistance online source; hopefully, it would fall into my expectations.
