I've been interested in weather since I was 11 years old when my uncle gave me a copy of Weather - A Guide to Phenomena and Forecasts.  I think it was one of the first books I ever read cover to cover.  I was pretty much hooked since then.  Back in my younger days I would make simple instruments out of whatever I had laying around the house.  I recall one time I made a wet bulb thermometer by putting a wet shoelace over a regular thermometer.

I am a trained weather spotter and I have my own Davis Vantage Pro 2 Wireless station, I provide data to Weather Underground and CWOP.  I maintain my own weather site at  

I am also interested in birding and photography especially nature/bird photography.  I've traveled around the USA to photograph birds and mammals.  You can find my work under the Photography Blog link on my website.

I'm glad to be a part of WXEdge.
