Always learning as a proud member of the weather enterprise. Born in the Midwest chasing tornadoes, derechos, lake-effect snow and COLD! Married a girl in Chicago, and three daughters later and five grandchildren, I’m called Papa. Raised the family in heat and humidity under the constant threat of hurricanes. Published on “Nor’easters” and “Western Drought and Wildfires.” And always striving to be a better communicator and storyteller, embracing the communities I am proud to serve. Very cool!
