  • Description:
    We have heard some rumbling around the region concerning the ELFP. Many of you probably are making the some remarks that were heard here in Wyoming when the ELFP was started back in the fall of 1987. Some of the typical remarks were "Who cares!" "Why change now, we have been doing it this way for all these years." "The public likes it the old way." Well we found out different. The public doesn't like it the old way, and they do care, and they do want to see some changes. After some surveys were made, we found out that the public and the media do like the new ELFP format. We also found out our judgments concerning the forecast were prejudiced by what WE LIKED or what WE THOUGHT the public liked. We were surprised that they wanted things to be different. "Shocked" may be a better word. Our egos were a bit tainted, but we got through it okay and our ELFP is getting better each day. Our suggestion ... here's your chance to have your ideas heard. The ELFP can be written in just about any format. Very little guidance was given in C-11 and the related ROML. So you have plenty of leeway. Let your words be heard, but remember, be professional. That was our guide through the orientation period. Here are some of our ideas that got us started. Maybe they will help you. The biggest hurdle you will have is just getting started. Give ELFP a chance and it may grow on you. You may like it.
