It was neat to participate in today’s #AMS2021 panel on Weather Act implementation and what’s ahead for Congressional action on the weather enterprise for the 117th Congress hosted by the ⁦@NWS⁩ . Hopefully next year’s conference will be in person!

@benrileysmith The plaque beside the Lincoln statue commemorates the union soldiers who were stationed in the capitol in April 1861 to prevent a southern incursion into capital. The dome was under construction at the time. Regardless, an unfortunate bit of historical symmetry.

Not surprisingly, my most viral tweet to date is a random fact about the U.S. capitol. I'm more of a social media influencee than influencer.

Isn't it surreal how the U.S. House *again* impeached a sitting president - for the second time in 55 weeks - and the collective reaction of most is a shrug? This is a very historic event and most everyone is numb to the profound events we are witnessing. Wow.

A lone Black officer faced down a mob at the Capitol. Meet Eugene Goodman.

A must read.

George Hill on the NBA’s revised protocols: “They can't tell me I have to stay in a room 24/7. If it's that serious, then maybe we shouldn't be playing.”

He's not wrong.

Alexandria Vice Mayor @EBP4Delegate Announces Candidacy for House of Delegates District 45 (The incumbent, @DelegateMark, is running for LG but has said he's not resigning from the House of Delegates.)

I fully support Delegate Levine's move up or move out strategy and hope he won't jump back in the race for his old seat when he continually polls < 2% for LG.

Biden agriculture secretary nominee Tom Vilsack scored $150k in Powerball winnings last year!

Due to his lottery winnings (and his salary), Tom Vilsack is not eligible for SNAP.

I take any journalist unseriously who said some guy had his feet on Speaker Posi's desk. I'm certain her desk is larger than mine and has fewer manilla folders strewn about.

A deep dive into 50 years of Robert Caro’s research, and a visit to his austere office, reveal how the author of “The Power Broker” and a multivolume biography of LBJ became the superstar chronicler of 20th-century America.

The biggest takeaway from this story is that Caro has spent most of the last year rewriting one section of this book. My new ETA for Volume V of the LBJ series is 2025.

I've always hated when Dick Durbin stares into the CSpan camera when speaking on the Senate floor. Now I note that Josh Hawley does the same.

If you need your spirit uplifted, then you should watch President-Elect Biden's address. A forceful denunciation of violence and an appeal to our better angels are exactly what we all need to hear now.

A protester hangs from a balcony in the #Senate Chamber after Trump supporters breached the U.S. Capitol in Washington, DC #USCapitol #CapitolBuilding 📷: @WinMc

Like this protestor in the U.S. Senate chamber, our democratic processes feel like they are hanging by a finger at the moment.
