I had an epiphany a week ago. I'm leaving IT, but had a hard time discussing whether to go into law, public affairs or weather forecasting.

On April 21, the Bartlett, IL Fire Protection District hosted National Weather Service spotter training. Most of the people attending worked in area police departments, and there it hit me: people who predict the weather save lives. Lawyers have a mixed record, for every Erin Brokovich there is a team of lawyers on the other side. People working in public affairs also have a similarly mixed record. Meteorologists, on the other hand, are generally on the public's side.

It helps that I have a better background from which to commence graduate study of meteorology than for the other fields...
