My job is to tell the truth (although some may argue), so you may be surprised as to the reason I became a Meteorologist. While I have always loved and been fascinated with the weather, I went to college in Wisconsin to become an Electrical Engineer. I spent many years building and designing speakers, and electrical equipment (I was a D.J. as well), so it seemed natural to follow my calling.
Well, after a year and one half of "hard studying" (that's why we go to school...right?), I realized I needed to make a change. I didn't want to lose any credits, so I decided Meteorology looked like fun. After 4 years and a degree, I found out that the job market wasn't really good, and that I could make more money bagging groceries!!! So I went back to school, got my masters degree in Meteorology, interned at a local T.V. station for two years (with no pay), and caught a lucky break.
My first job in TV was doing weekend weather in Madison, Wisconsin. After all those years of freezing in 80 below zero cold, I got a chance to go to New England, where winter is only 20 below, but the snowfall can be seven feet!! Massachusetts was beautiful, the people were friendly, but way too much snow! Of course, going back to Milwaukee after that eliminated the heavy snow, but then it was too cold again!
Finally, after the frostbite wore off, it was time to move to a place where we wouldn't need the snowblower, the shovels, and the seven layers of clothing. Texas was the perfect choice! The people here are super friendly, the winters are mild, and my clothing bill will be significantly lower. O.K., so summers are a WEE BIT warm. But I can always take my kids and visit my parents back in New York!
I enjoy racquetball, good wine, gourmet cooking, gardening and hanging out with my kids Nathan and Lexi.

Clouds...some fog and a spat of drizzle today before drier air comes in tomorrow. Once it does? We could see a nice warm SPRING week in the 80s!
While storms head out this morning, more will redevelop tonight into Thursday morning...and maybe even a few more showers Friday morning before we get some cooler direr air to start the weekend.
Scattered showers this AM, may turn into stronger storms this eve and overnight. A second high coverage event comes in Thursday before we finally start to dry out this weekend....
We dry out today, but this pattern isn't done with us yet. Even though we will get warmer, we will stay wetter!
Temps stay warm until later this week when rain and storm chances are on the rise into the weekend.
Shower this morning, should exit...and 70s take over. Even 80+ by mid-week before a stronger system heads in to end the week.
50s return today, then some gusty COLD winds tomorrow. We hit the bottom Thursday morning, then it's straight up to end the month!
Something different every day. Mild winds today...then cool winds Tuesday and COLD winds Wednesday!
Temps will be falling to day, with some showers possible, but the BEST rain chances are Wednesday PM and night. Widespread and chilly!
Near 80 today but a cold front tonight will drop temps and increase rain chances starting tomorrow and continuing mid-week.
