Here's to Ted…

Fearless Fathauer has left the building.

It's official, Ted has retired:

Ted helped me get my first job in Alaska and I've learned a lot from him in the past 25 years. He was the last of the old school meteorologists here, who cut their teeth in the weather forecasting biz before computer models largely replaced the need for actual physical understanding. Ted's surface and upper air analyzes are a pleasure work with, painting the weather story of the day.

 Good Luck Ted!!

  1. From me as well.

    He was always able to find the time to offer up an extended forecast before our wilderness work trips in the days before the Internet and SAT phones.

    If anyone can earn a PhD after a full work career, it's him.
