Finding a meteorologist the perfect gift

Looking for the perfect gift for the meteorologist in your family? Looking for the perfect gift for the meteorologist in your family?
KHQ.com -  Ever wondered what to get the meteorologist in your family for Christmas? Finally, there is an answer... No longer do you need to try to find a weather vane or remember how to pronounce anemometer (ana-mom-met-er) while hunting for their gift. No need to searching the entire book store for the one weather-related book they carry. While these are great gifts, shopping for that meteorologist in your family may have just gotten a bit easier. 


This year get them what every aspiring meteorologist needs: Shoes! 






Last year Nike unveiled what they called the "Nike Weatherman Pack: Opposing Elements." Quite the title if I do say so myself. They come in the legendary comfort and style of the popular Air Force 1 shoe, and a second style of shoe with Air Foamposite 1 to create the ultimate gift for the meteorologist.

Nike says the design is supposed to reflect a radar return similar to what you might see on your computer or TV. Trying to recreate the Doppler radar, the blues show the call and the reds are the storm that is brewing, this is sure to make the top spot on the wish list for every meteorologist, including myself. (I wear size 11 1/2 if anyone feels so inclined!) This is definitely one gift this holiday season that will make any jaw drop. 

If you feel like picking me up a pair, or for yourself do so here ---

    PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - An Oregon man hunting for deer near Mt. Hood killed a cougar after he says three of the big cats advanced toward him. KGW-TV reports Bill Nylund of Rhododendron was hunting near Badger Lake earlier this month when the cougars approached. He says the animals didn't appear scared of him, leaving him no choice but to shoot one. He shot an adult female cougar that was about 50 feet (15 meters) away.
