What I learned from my trip to Stark Vegas covering the biggest football game in Mississippi State history last weekend: http://valleywx.com/2014/10/16/a-hat-tip-to-the-sports-guys/

"This handsome male monarch butterfly showed up on this cool fall morning. It was nice short visit. Perhaps he's migrating to greener (warmer) pastures? I'm not exactly sure how that works.

Oh no! Are they ashamed of eating horses? Maybe they should reconsider. It's too bad there is a Starbucks in France. I stopped supporting them when they started kicking a bunch of money into the Grocery Manufacturing Assoc., which campaigns against gmo labels. Yeah, sorry to say, Starbucks loves its gmos and keeping consumers in the dark about their ingredients.

October has been a frog-happy month.  Most of us have had more than 200% of normal rainfall in the past 10 days; the next 7-10...they look a lot more like October instead of this warm, humid, rainy mess: www.whnt.com/weather/forecast/

Sometimes spam is the highlight of my work day.  "Oh, you just got to the airport?  Lucky for you I'm nearby!  Let me come pick you up!"

Strong storms ongoing and still possible through the evening; see www.valleywx.com for the latest info.  Most of the storms will produce small hail and wind gusts over 40 MPH.

WHNT News 19 Chief Meteorologist
Introduction
I'm the Chief Meteorologist at WHNT News 19 in Huntsville, Alabama, and a huge Mississippi State fan.  I've got Facebook and Twitter accounts as well; follow me across the board!  I post a lot of weather information for the Tennessee Valley, but it's not going to be all weather, all the time.
Bragging rights
I outkicked my coverage when I married my wife Lacey in 2010. Our first child, Walt, was born in October 2011, and our little Sweet Surprise Shelby came to us in July 2013. I've got a beautiful family, and they mean more to me than anything else in the world!
