Hi there. Glad to be here! 

 

I have short brown hair, have a love for music, and find weather to really quite interesting!

 

I am just looking for the right one and hope I could meet some real weather buffs here! (buff being the key word. ;) )

I'm a 38 year old w/m with male pattern baldness, well-defined calf muscles and an above average understanding of cold air advection and its everyday uses.  

 

I drive a vehicle that gets less than 15 miles per gallon and have at times in my life had an irrational fear of being raped by Bea Arthur.

I got my met B.S. at the U of Utah.  Was a met for a couple years in Salt Lake (until the recession).  Have been a weather geek since a little kid watching the 'Local Forecasts' on the Weather Channel way back in '92-'93.  Love the outdoors, women, electronic music, and am a full blown internet addict.

Hi. I'm a 32 year old science **, a (retired) plasma physicist, and former climate scientist. I did extensive modeling of the global electric circuit, as well as the responsive behavior of climate dynamics to external stimuli and the "inertial middle-man".

I achieved my degrees in a A.S., Physics, and Mathematics from U.M.D. in 2006. I've been a weather nerd since I was a little kid standing out in the most violent of weather with nothing but my birthday suit on.. :)

Just wanted to say 'thanks' to those who make this site possible, and a special thanks for the mobile version. The lack of a mobile layout at the old forums definitely kept me from posting observations and such while on the road, which is most of the time these days. It will be far easier for me to keep in touch now.

 

And another thanks to those of you who spread your weather knowledge in an educational format for guys like me who are pretty much meteorologic-ally clueless.

I am a 29 year old weather geek who lives in the Cascade foothills about 25 miles east of Salem, Oregon. I have been interested in weather for as long as I can remember, at least since I was 5 years old. Two of my early weather memories were the snow in February 1990 and then the December 1990 arctic blast. The winter of 1992-93 cemented my love of weather and I have been pretty much obsessed ever since. My keenest interest is in historical weather data as I am a bit of a numbers guy. I prefer cool,wet, or snowy weather. The sun is nice as long as it does not get above 85.

Hi, I'm a huge weather geek. My qualifications are vast and extensive. I'm a Music Producer @Bass Mekanik since January 2011. I've been a Severe Weather Analyst, Radar Analyst, and Storm Tracker for many years and run a Severe Weather Group based in Texas(Go figure WTF I'm from Oregon?) Yeah. That's how I roll. I like extreme weather, so clearly I live at the wrong place. I'm terrified by Fog and when it Mists under 40 degrees. No, I am not related to the Gorton's Fisherman. My fondest weather memories..... Hmmm.

 

Supercell of August 1990 or 1991 (had Golf Ball sized hail)

Ice storm of 1996 (Trees down, power line down in back yard, tree caught on fire. Had to abandon the House. Without power for 6 days.)

January 2004 (A boat load of snow, then a week later, another blast with inches of sleet and 10" of Snow. Very cold)

February 2005? Downslope east wind storm. It was CRAZY

December 2008 (Snow lovers paradise. 28" on the ground Christmas Eve. FTW!)

110mph winds Crown Point this one night during the Winter sometime (Crazy gusts threw me up the stairs slamming me into the Vista House door/windows. Had to form a human chain of 4 people just to be able to get back to the car.)

 

Many other events

Hi! I am a 37yr old North Snohomish Co. lifer! (Oh I love typing !!!! incase people haven't noticed!) Married with a child on the way. My profession is in the animal rescue field, I work for a fairly large non profit dog/cat rescue group that only take animals from over crowded animal shelters around the state to cut down on the euthanasia of healthy and adoptable cats and dogs. My job is to drive to our partner shelters (mainly in Eastern Wa) each week and temperament test dogs, and bring the ones that pass back to our facility to be adopted. I truly love my job! My hobbies are the weather of course, competing in dog agility trials with my own dogs, and playing on the water in the summer. We have a lake house on Lake goodwin and that is where I spend most of my free time in the summer. I live only about 5 miles away from the lake. MossMan comes from the constant battle with moss up here, plus I know how much Tim loves moss! Snow and wind are my favorite types of weather events!

My top 5 weather events are...
#5 Dec 1990 arctic blast
#4 Nov 1985 Arctic blast
#3 Dec 1995 windstorm
#2 Dec 2008 Arctic blast
#1 Nov 2006 Arctic blast!

Oh and like Dewey I also drive a vehicle that gets less than 15MPG :)

Hi Everyone,

 

I've followed the posts on the older forum, but want to formally introduce myself. Recently, I graduated from a Canadian university with a BSc. in Atmospheric Sciences, and in the interim I've created the weather blog

50 Shades of Van focusing on weather in Vancouver, BC but also the Pacific Northwest as a whole.

 

Would absolutely love some feedback to the site, as it's still being developed. Just finished my latest post, which you can check out here: http://50shadesofvan...014/1/21/skiers

 

Thanks, and look forward to participating in these forums!

 

Cheers.

Hello!  Long time lurker here.  Signed up for the first time once the forum moved to this spiffy new address.

 

Born and raised Angeleno. Grew up in Los Angeles County near Long Beach and became fascinated with meteorology at and early age. (see attached pic w/ sweater that reads: "Rain Heavy At Times" which in LA was my favorite forecast to see)  So much so that for my 7th birthday, my parents put a classifieds ad in the paper stating "Happy Birthday, to our little weatherman".

 

Ended up working for a large software & services company ;] headquartered here in the PNW while living in Downtown Los Angeles.  Had the opportunity to move up here three years ago and jumped at it.  Haven't looked back since!

 

I live in Downtown Seattle.  Moved here mere days before the November 2010 event. (see attached pic)  I remain passionate about meteorology and still have a lot to learn about local microclimates in the Puget Sound region.  I get the most out of this forum by learning about past meteorological history in this region from many of you.  Thanks!

I am trying to figure out which forum is best for me. I live in Central Illinois between Peoria and Springfield.

 

That doesn't sound like Great Lakes but Central Plains is not a good fit either. Suggestions or advice appreciated.
