I've been fascinated with weather since close encounters with several tornadoes as a child (Including the Xenia tornado during the 1974 outbreak.) I wanted to be a weather researcher "when I grew up," but I struggled with the high-level math in college. (LOVED the physics!) My fascination with weather has never waned.
