Question 4. From a purely meteorological point of view, where would you most like to live?
I actually live in a great place on Earth here in Charleston, SC. We get to see every season for the most part with some fantastic weather.

More about Shea:
Most of the operational forecasting I do is wind related for wind and watersportsman, as well as for coastal maritime efforts. We have an extensive coastal mesonet with 5 minute station updates for enhanced near real time observations. We have 5 consumer applications named WindAlert, SailFlow, iKitesurf, iWindsurf and FishWeather for the wind and water enthusiasts…as well as our professional Datascope viewer for enterprise and government usages. For pro-bono work and outreach, I run the “Chucktown Wind Report” group on Facebook for the Charleston, SC area.
