Career Opportunities

As I’ve said, surfers and runners are among the biggest weather-geeks you’re ever going to find. In fact, I am teaching Mariel the age old skills of reading the weather by sight, sound, smell, taste and feel. She has a knack for it.

"I don't smell the rain yet, Daddy, and the wind is going the wrong way still."

Even so, my holistic forecasting methods, however accurate, could never get me a job on The Weather Channel. I did, however, find one postion I am perfectly suited to, that wouldn’t require any meteorological background; in fact no advanced education whatsoever. I wouldn’t even have to relocate, either [alas, I wouldn’t be hanging out with Jim Cantore, Stephanie Abrams, et al.]
