Question 1. What was your most memorable weather event?
I don't honestly have one specific event, but I can tell you that I have extremely vivid memories of sitting at my bedroom window in my childhood home in Arkansas (between the ages of 4-8) when snow was in the forecast, waiting for snow to fall. I'd stare endlessly at the security light in our yard. I also have many memories of leaving our double wide trailer and driving to my aunt's home when we had tornadoes in the area. She had a brick house and my mom felt safer there.
Question 2. What is your favourite and least favourite type of weather?
My favorite type of weather is snow. I love it and get plenty of it living in Colorado.
My least favorite type of weather is heat. I get cranky when the temperature exceeds 90 degrees.
Question 3. If you weren't a meteorologist what would you most like to be?
An accountant or an airline pilot. I love to work with numbers and stay organized with spreadsheets. I also love aviation.
Question 4. From a purely meteorological point of view, where would you most like to live?
I am exactly where I need and want to be. I truly think Denver has the best weather in the world. It changes frequently enough that I don't get bored and the forecasting challenge keeps me constantly referring to Meteorology 101.
Question 5. Is there anything else you'd like to share?
I have never been in a hurricane but I crave the day that I will get to have my Jim Cantore moment and be standing on a beach as a storm roars on shore.
