The occasion was a reunion/gathering of current and former members or Meteorologists who worked closely in the Foot's Forecast team since 2010. To honor their dedication to our readership and student forecasters, each member was given a team hoody and in between their conference sessions, we gathered the crew for a quick snapshot! Although many featured in the photo have moved into advanced degrees or launched their professional careers with other companies, their impact on all our lives and the team remains steadfast to this day.
