Sorry that I haven't been around the boards recently...... I made some new friends at a Knoxville TV station. I have decided to do some freelance work while working on my other projects.

Yes, Knoxville. I will be helping out my new friends for the next five weeks, maybe longer.

Did it take long to "get it back" or did you have to practice for a while?

Just like the old saying Kitty, "just like riding a bike". It took a few days to get the graphics down, but the tv part is the easy side of the presentation. At the weather channel we (most of the time) created our own radar sequence, but the maps were built by behind the scene meteorologists.

My Knoxville freelance weather job is now over. I had to get to some issues at home that needed my attention. I made some new friends and had a blast working with some great people in front of the camera and behind the scenes.

It looks like you'll be busy with the hurricane forecasts soon!

Good call Kitty! First tropical storm of the eastern Pacific season.

I thought Kitty might be referring to the storm that almost formed east of Florida several days ago???

Yes, by the look of the tropical weather messages at the top of the board it looks like you are busy! I hope it doesn't migrate to the Atlantic!
