Question 1. What was your most memorable weather event?
Winter storm on November 30 – December 1, 2006 that brought thundersnow and more than 15” of snow to much of central Missouri. That was my first experience with thundersnow. We had temperatures in the 60's with thunderstorms just two days prior! It was a wild couple of days!
Question 2. What is your favourite and least favourite type of weather?
My favorite type of weather is winter weather, especially snowstorms. My least favorite type of weather is heat waves. They are dangerous and I don’t like being hot..
Question 3. If you weren't a meteorologist what would you most like to be?
If I weren’t a meteorologist, I’d most likely be a coach or teacher. I’m really into sports, especially hockey!
Question 4. From a purely meteorological point of view, where would you most like to live?
I like the Midwest because we get so many different types of weather, sometimes all seasons of weather in one week or day
Question 5. Is there anything else you'd like to share?
I am thankful for the places I’ve been able to live, all of the people I’ve been able to meet and work with during my career. I hope that we continue to improve our skill and precision in tracking and forecasting weather, especially hazardous weather.
