I'm not sure when I first developed such a keen interest in weather but it was sometime after I moved to Ledyard, CT in 1974. In fact, I am so much of a "weather weenie" that during the 2004 Hurricane season, I signed online to a paid weather service, Accuweather Professional. While reading Meteorologist Joe Lundberg's blog, I paged down to his biography. "Joe was born in Washington, D.C, on November 22, 1961. When he was 9 months old, his family moved to Ledyard, Connecticut, where he graduated from Ledyard HighSchool in 1979." Needless to say, I was delighted to find a Ledyard High School grad who had made a career of one my favorite subjects. I emailed Joe and asked if he could share with me how he found his way from the town of Ledyard to Accuweather. Joe was kind enough to email me back and I found out plenty more about Joe's road to becoming a Meteorologist. I wrote an article about Joe in my "I Love Ledyard" newspaper and in it he shared his memories of Ledyard during New England's blizzard of '78.
Since our exchange of emails, I've met Joe in person and this summer we even played a round of golf together. He predicted great weather and it was indeed the perfect day for golf even if my golf game was far from perfect! Joe is also now working in television, broadcasting live for MSNBC on weekends.
I thought of Joe today when I read his Accuweather blog where he wrote "If I were back home in Ledyard, CT, it looks to me like another case of a cold day (tomorrow) with sunshine followed by some late-day clouds, giving way to some snow at the start, and I go to bed all smiles because I just KNOW I won't have school the next day, only to wake up with the ground BARE with a pouring rain pounding on the rooftop." I smiled when I read that. We haven't had a real blizzard for many years and I've woken up many days to that same disappointment that Joe felt as a kid. Expecting snow and getting rain. I can still hope.
Now back to the weenie part. For Christmas, I bought my husband a real live wireless weather station from Davis Instruments. (No relation.) Ok, so my husband knows I really bought it for me but fortunately he's a weenie too. My weather station is now stationed on my back deck measuring all things weather related with the anemometer on the roof. AND NOW....with the Weatherlink Software, I hope to soon have my own online weather website. I'll link to it from my website and blog. Now, how cool is that?
