As we celebrate a day to give thanks for all our blessings, it seemed appropriate to announce my future plans at FOX 8. I will be retiring on February 26, 2016 after 38 mostly great years at Ch. 8. I have decided to leave the stress of everyday weathercasting for a more predictable relaxation of retirement. I have many hobbies (golf, fishing, gardening) and will certainly do lots of traveling, something I couldn’t do with the restrictions of rating periods & Hurricane Season. Will I miss it? I don’t think so since there is so much information out there on the internet that wasn’t around just 10 years ago. I will still be available during the 2016 Hurricane Season if a storm threatens the Gulf. My journey is not lock in yet and I am waiting to see which direction life calls me. As Yogi once said…”when you get to the fork in the road…take it!” Thanks to everyone for their kind comments. I treasure the friendships I’ve developed over the years even if we have never met. I have never taken your trust for granted. Thanks.
We could not have asked for a better weather forecast for the next 2-3 days. Perhaps a stray shower or two may develop, but no widespread rains are likely before next week. Gone is the chill of earlier this week and back are the muggies with highs in the 70s. Morning fog could be a problem over the weekend when winds should diminish. Stay tuned!
