Great! I wonder whether I could get a kid interested here. I'm old and can't last for ever and I'd be glad to have someone 70-75 years younger take over. I could start him/her off by donating a weather station and computer. However, I would want the kid to show real enthusiasm and be willing to work towards doing a lot more than I've been able to!

the more kids that get interested the better for us all.   Meteorology is a tough show but now is the time to get the kid from reporting conditions, recording climate events and trends into forecast and university.  Great article, Brian ,  I appreciate your sharing.

I contacted him on Facebook message and he got back to me.  I congratulated him and encouraged him to pursue meteorology as a career at a Univesity plus, use WD to post current conditions on FB.
