“I was very impressed with Cat’s desire to understand and then communicate the understanding of the meteorological reasons for the flood, and the limitations of our current forecast products. I especially appreciated that Cat involved me in all phases of the production. Scientists fear their work being taken out of context; for us, scientific accuracy is paramount. Cat let me see her edited product and make suggestions about what could be cut, what extra material needed to be added, and asked me to review her own narrative to determine if it was factually accurate. Were there another project that Cat were to work on that needed my expertise, I would be extremely happy to work with her again. The first time around was an unadulterated pleasure.”
