Storms! If I’m not working out, playing softball or finding any excuse to get outside, I’m watching the radar! I’m usually watching the radar even when I’m outdoors having fun. If you see me at Walmart or anywhere, stop me, say hi and ask me about the forecast… I’ll take a break from watching the radar to talk with you!
