Life’s Forecast: Predictably Unpredictable

Why an American Family meteorologist is part of a national hurricane prediction team


See what American Family meteorologist Kyle Davis has to say about his work forecasting hurricanes and how he was able to make a career of his passion for weather.

They say the only constants in life are death and taxes, but I would think weather and insurance would be honorable mentions. Thanks to the unequal heating of the earth’s surface by the sun, weather – that mood-changing, sunburn-inducing, life-giving, always-there-for-you-when-the-conversation-is-dull fact of life, is a constant.

And then there’s insurance, which most of us have of one type or another. It may not be readily obvious to some, but the two actually go together like peanut butter and jelly.

Most meteorologists don’t start out wanting to work in insurance, possibly because they don’t even know meteorologists work at insurance companies. Such was my case, but life has a way of leading you down paths you never anticipated, and it is important to be ready for new opportunities however they may unpredictably arise.
