Before you press 'send' - Would you say those things to my coworkers who are shaped differently (read: thinner) than me?
I'm here to do the WEATHER for Hampton Roads' most accurate forecasting team.
Not have my body picked apart by strangers.
Y'all really wouldn't walk up to a stranger on the street and say those things. Why y'all walking in my inbox/mentions?

So I didn't have a Wednesday Weather Word (a subsidiary of the #ScienceBehind franchise) yesterday. So here's one for you on this (not) Wednesday: #BlueMoon
Yes I know this is astronomy not weather but it's timely so stick with me here #13newsnow#STEM#Astronomy#fullmoon
Check out this stellar (or should I say 'lunar'?) photo on our Skyview from this morning.
each step of your life really prepares you for the next.
i'm sitting here thinking about how #isaias affected us in VA/NC and how if i never moved to Iowa, i might not have gotten the level of tornado/severe weather experience to prepare me for tropical coverage.
as tough as it was out there, i have no choice but to be grateful 🙏🏾

Y'all remember my series #ScienceBehind that used to air on Wednesdays? It's cool if you don't - a LOT has been going on.
I don't have a new video but let's do a new installment via tweet thread (I know it's not an innovative idea but I remembered there's science this week)
Okay so on New Year's Day, we aired a segment on perihelion 🌍. Shameless plug here if you want a refresher
@mboltonwx@nwas@ametsoc@AMSEarlyCareer Imposter syndrome in meteorology as a WOC is very real. Many days I feel like my colleagues (not necesarily at my current station) may not see me as smart/capable/eloquent/etc enough or that I got to where I am because of a "quota" and not my degree. 1/@mboltonwx@nwas@ametsoc@AMSEarlyCareer Many days I feel like I am not smart/capable/eloquent/etc enough because I don't see too many WOC in the weather community.
