I managed to miss the day itself, but yesterday was the 10th anniversary of Rick's first post here on the Deep Cold blog.
Rick maintained a high frequency of posts for the first 3 years, and then the authorship transitioned to me (Richard James) in summer 2013. Brian Brettschneider also contributed a number of posts for a time. The "official" hand-off was nearly 7 years ago:
My approach has generally been to write more detailed but infrequent posts, and regrettably the frequency has declined as other priorities have intruded; but I've found it a most enjoyable "hobby" to explore a wide range of topics over the years. I've often told my wife that I would probably still write the blog even if no-one reads it, because it serves as both a repository of my informal research and a record of a few of Alaska's major weather and climate events. Even now I find it very helpful to refer back to material from earlier years.
I often think it would be nice to have more daily weather commentary on the blog, along the lines of what Rick used to do, but I do find brevity to be a challenge. I'm also not sufficiently immersed in day-to-day weather in Alaska, as I don't live in the Great Land. I'd be delighted if one day that might change, and then I'll report firsthand; but for now, I'll continue with comments from afar.
