Re: Brooks Garner

Hi, friends! The move to Colorado went well, with no major issues. I've been settling into the new station and getting oriented with and acclimated to the high plains/mountain weather patterns. Glad to be here on the forum! Thank you again for all of your kind words!

Oh yeah, Jim's a great guy. Met him at a conference years ago. He's an amazing dude, traveling the world to chase typhoons, cyclones and hurricanes. Thanks for thinking of me!
