One year ago today, we lost someone very special here in CT. He was loved by many CT residents, and was and always will be my mentor.  He has been my greatest inspiration to pursue a career in broadcast meteorology.  Dr. Mel Goldstein worked at WTNH in New Haven CT as the Chief Meteorologist for many years, providing CT's most accurate weather forecasts. Over the years Dr. Mel received numerous awards for best weathercast and on-air personality. Dr. Mel suffered from cancer for well over 10 years, and always had a smile on his face. There wasn't a day that went by that Dr. Mel didn't have a smile on. A few years ago, I had the great pleasure of meeting Dr. Mel, where he personally signed his book about CT weather. Meeting Dr. Mel was one of the best experiences I have ever had.  I remember telling him that day how much I wanted to be a meteorologist.  I asked if he had any advice for me and he said, "young man, just remember, if your teacher tells you to do all the even math problems for homework, do all the odd ones too! You're going to need to know a lot of math!"
