I just wanted to create a little place for new members to meet and say hi to everyone and introduce themselves.  B) Welcome to the TWC Today forums! If you have any problems or questions, please don't hesitate to ask me :)

Hiya!

Thanks very much!  You are way to sweet!   :D

I'm Andrea, and I'm a news producer/weather writer.  I'm currently in between producing jobs, but I'm freelancing for the Examiner.com as their Tampa Weather Examiner.

I am a self-proclaimed weather nerd and trained spotter with the National Weather Service.

Love the site!
And, feel free to follow me on Twitter!  I'd love to hear from ya!

ETA:  I just moved back to Florida from Phoenix, Arizona.  I'd love to chat monsoon with any Arizona peeps out there!  That's probably the most interesting weather experience I've ever had!

I live close by to Arizona, and I do get some monsoonal storms here, just not that much as Phoenix or any other Arizona city does.

Hey everyone! 

I've probably introduced myself before, but I figure I'd do it again in this thread. 

My name's Mel, and I've been a wx nerd since elementary school.  I've been a TWC nerd since then as well.  The local forecasts actually helped me increase my reading speeds back when I was younger.  My father's vision's not-so-great, so I'd read them out loud to him (until the narration came along... taking my job, weather channel... grr.   ;) ) and it really did work.  Without that, I don't think I could read as fast as I do today.

Anyway, I hope to talk to you all more, and have a great day!

Anistorm ~ Oh, sweet!  Where near Arizona do you live?  Technically, I lived in Glendale, and was there for 2 years.  I worked for the CBS affiliate there.  I think a monsoon storm is an awesome experience.  The dust storms, the lightning, etc.  Storms there are much different than here in Florida.

Mames ~ That's awesome about Local on the 8s helping you read!  I used to watch TWC 24/7 when I was in high school!

I live 50 miles west of Yuma (I live in the deserts of CA btw) I've heard of Glendale, My boyfriend has family there.
Yes I've been through those...more recently dust storms. Recently like a month ago or so, a huge windstorm came through here...the winds were so strong the branches from my tree's backyard fell right next to my house!
I havent seen rain at all this season, overall I've seen lightning various times.
