I grew up watching Dave, and his weather forecasts. But he was more influential, not about the weather, but about geography.
Today, many children do not know their geography. Dave was so important in my discovery of every state in the union, that I became a travel agent.
Dave Brown spurred my interest in all nations of the world.
One example is when I called Channel 5, at a very young age, to tell him that he confused Wyoming with Colorado.
Moments like that are precious and memorable.
Thank you, Dave, for being there for the weather, and even more importantly for my geographical education.
