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.

Dry, cool weather to start the week but a Pacific storm kicks in Tuesday and may linger through Thursday morning with clouds and at least a couple of chances for rain.
Rain expands this morning as north winds drive down cooler air. The rain becomes spottier tonight through Friday morning, then picks up in the evening with temps still in 50s.
Temps WELL above average today and tomorrow without a lot of sun! We turn cooler Thursday with some morning rain possible, then warmer again to end the week with showers/storms.
Very pleasant next couple of days, but eventually the warmth will mean a chance for storms by Friday!
Mild to warm winter week with wet weather to finish! Mostly sunny skies get us back into the 60s PM. Slightly cooler Tue, but still sunny...and still relatively mild. South winds increase Wed. Mostly cloudy (few showers Thu) with showers/storms Friday.
Mild south winds today, cooler NW winds tomorrow...lots of clouds, BUT nothing crazy to start the new year! We even get a nice weekend. Enjoy!
Temps in the 50s with dry air and sun to end the year, but we may begin 2020 with more clouds and some low rain chances.
Humid air today will lead to more showers and some storms Saturday before gusty, COOL winds take over Sunday! Temps will eventually return to more "normal" end of year levels.
This warm air will yield a LOT more cloudiness next two days and finally some showers and storms for Saturday (nothing too strong). We finish the weekend with gusty, chilly NW winds and near "normal" temps to end 2019!
South winds are with us through at least Saturday. Sun rules today with highs in low 70s. More clouds Thu-Fri with the next decent rain chance (a few storms) on Saturday.
