My love of weather started as a young kid. When I was a kid I would come home from school and watch the Weather Channel all afternoon and evening. I also had my first weather station on my roof when I was 13.

When I was 16, I would ride my bicycle over 10 miles from my house in New Haven to Bethany just to check out if there was any snow at a higher elevation.

As I became an adult my love of weather has continued.  About 4 years ago upon moving to Hamden, I became more advanced by installing a Davis Vantage Pro 2 Weather Station at my house. I am able to look back at past weather data from my station with software on my computer.

 Instead of my bicycle I now drive around in my car, during the Winter to check just where the rain/snow line is setting up in the higher elevations of Hamden.

 

I report my conditions to Gil Simmons frequently and I am also a Skywarn Spotter for the National Weather Service.  I spend my spare time outdoors as I am an avid hiker and kayaker.
