STATE OF THE FACTORY: YEAR 2featured

Once again, here’s how Weather Factory is doing, here’s how we thought we’d be doing, and here’s what we’re doing next. Welcome to this year’s Giant Summary Post!

SEPT #3: THEODOREfeatured

“Difficulties are just things to overcome, after all,” said Ernest Shackleton, somewhere between Antarctic triumph and dying in South Georgia of an alcohol-induced heart attack. I wonder which end of that spectrum I’ll end up on? I’ve always had a thing for cold, heroic exploration. Whether it’s a first-hand account of Scott’s final expedition to Read more
