I was captivated by the weather at an early age. This book describes some of the unique weather-related experiences I've had during my lifetime and how they helped pique my interest in this subject.. Most notable were incidents involving severe weather like thunderstorms, snowstorms and hurricanes. Highlighting my experiences has been my amateur meteorologist volunteer effort as a Tampa Bay (Fl.) area Weather Spotter. An analysis of more than 613,000 pieces of rainfall data recorded during the past seventeen years has led to some interesting conclusions about southwest Florida weather trends. Culminating my writing is a brief discussion about climate change.
For those individuals having a special interest in weather, my book should be a pleasant read.

About the Author
I am a retired Nondestructive Testing Engineer/Manager living for the past twenty-three years with my wife Judy in Sarasota, Florida. At one point in my life, as a junior in college, I considered entering the field of meteorology. When that didn't materialize, I made a personal vow to become an amateur meteorologist and monitor the weather when I retired. I did that, but did so several years before my retirement in 2000. My unique lifetime weather experiences together with a very satisfactory seventeen years of volunteering as a Weather Spotter and weather monitoring led me to write 'Whether To, Or Weather - Not To'.
