Story
Introduction
I am a meteorologist/climatologist and the Illinois Coordinator for CoCoRaHS since the program started here in December 2006.   I was director of the Midwestern Regional Climate Center for 13 years, retiring from that position in October 2011.  Since retiring I've kept busy working on CoCoRaHS, some special climate projects, fishing when I can, and woodworking.
