I love the Weather Museum. The "best kept secret" in Houston, Texas is the Nation's first and only Weather Museum. Weather Research Center does great work in educating adults, teachers, children, and the entire community abou the weather's impact on all of us. You would enjoy coming to see our Weather Museum at 5104 Caroline in the Houston Museum District.

I sm on the Board of Directors and attend the annual Golf Tournament and the Gala each year. WRC is a great non-profit group that helps educate the younger generation in science and technology. I wish we could get more participation from the offshore community as there are few groups in the offshore that help educate the younger generation in math and science.

What an opportunity to help the future growth of a Museum to be nestled in the Museum District and be an educational tool specifically for future scientists and meteorologists! It has been a great experience for me to see the support of the local meteorologists and corporate donors for this incredible Event. Many of the volunteers who helped last year are back again giving their time, money and effort to a very worthwhile cause.

As a young twenty-something Ensign in the U.S. Navy I had the priviledge of being the communications officer for the Fleet Weather Central/Joint Typhoon Warning Center, Guam. My division ensured critical meteorological and oceanographic information was delivered to the fleet commanders on a timely and accurate manner. This tour of duty opened my eyes on how atmospheric conditions has an impact on an ordinary day in ones life to the success of a military mission, a launch of a NASA rocket, the playing of a golf match to playing "in tune" for an orchestral concert. Weather is a part of life and the Weather Research Center provides the people, technology as well as the educational and historical information to help the community understand the how and why the weather acts the way it does. There are lots of "hands-on" activities to learn about the science of weather at the Weather Research Center. The professional staff is also willing to do corporate and educational outreach programs to accomodate the public it serves. For the above mentioned reasons, I highly recommend not only touring the Weather Research Center but also contributing to its physical growth in support of our community.

As a Hurricane IKE survivor I have gained a greater appreciation of the destructive force of tropical cyclones. The Weather Research Center provides an accurate prediction and analysis of storms and keeps the public and private sectors well informed.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The professional passion and commitment to the mission of the Weather Research Center and its customers by the staff and volunteers.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

professional.
