My name is Becky Ditchfield, and I’m a television meteorologist in Denver, Colorado. I’m married with two small kids. I love God and consider myself a christian. But I also believe that everyone is allowed their own beliefs, and judging others gets you no where. A little bit of grace, and an attempt at understanding can go a long way.
Covering the weather day-to-day can be extremely challenging in this state. And oftentimes we find ourselves nowcasting. In the weather world nowcasting is defined as weather forecasting on a very short term mesoscale period of up to 2 hours. As storm systems evolve, nowcasting becomes essential to informing the public and keeping people safe.
Now that I have a family with 2 small kids, I’m realizing I’m also frequently trying to figure things out with them last minute! Nowcasting… if you will. Much like the weather, it’s not an exact science, and I make mistakes. But that’s what makes me human and I’m a better human if I learn from it.
Experiencing life is a lot like experiencing a severe thunderstorm: terrifying and exhilarating all at once. Weathering it can often be the hardest part.
So that’s what this blog is about. Weathering life, weathering my job, finding balance and trying to work it all out. “Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it is about learning to dance in the rain.”
