A Very Magical New Year

Dear <<First Name>>,

It has been a year of ups and downs, but we have made it! As 2018 comes to a close, I find myself reflecting on all the twists and turns this amazing journey has taken over the past year. Last year at this time I was preparing to give my very first panel forum at the American Meteorological Society (AMS) conference. The goal was to introduce terrestrial weather broadcasters to Space Weather and show them how important it was to our modern world. In comparison, this year for the AMS I have been asked to give an invited talk on our Space Weather community. It turns out that the AMS members are beginning to take note of who we are and what we are tying to do as we continue to grow and find our voice.

Looking at how far we have come, its clear that 2018 has been an extraordinary year for this community. Slowly but surely, we are beginning to make "Space Weather" a household name and I am eager to get the chance to highlight just a few of the ways we are raising public awareness while we help ourselves and each other prepare for the future.

So as the Sun celebrates the coming new year in its own inimitable way, I too will take time to enjoy the weather. In this last forecast of 2018, I talk about the Sun celebrating with an ongoing solar storm that continues to bring spectacular aurora to many parts of the world. Although I may be viewing the aurora only though the eyes of this community's precious field reporters, I couldn't feel more inspired. Its the perfect accompaniment while writing this talk about how far we have come together. And as I look towards the future, I see a lot of promising paths we have yet to take. Even if these new roads twist and turn, I feel certain it is going to be a very magical new year.
