My name is Jeremy Lanier Camp. I was born in the town of Decatur, Georgia in November 1985. I am currently from the east Atlanta suburban town of Snellville, Georgia one of the fastest growing suburbs in the Atlanta metro area. I went to high school at South Gwinnett High School and graduated in 2004 at the Gwinnett Arena in Duluth, GA. I am also an associate member for the American Meteorological Society currently and a former member of the National Weather Association. I show a healthy interest in meteorology and meteorological related sciences. I also own a Davis Vantage Pro II weather station, 2 Galileo thermometers, 1 Mercury thermometer and a hand helt weather device called a Skymaster. I have lived in the state of Georgia for year's and have seen interesting weather patterns come and go on a daily basis. I have also had some experiences with the weather. It's self in the past such as Blizzard '93, the major drought of 1999 also the January 2000 Southeast Ice Storm, the Thanksgiving Day 2004 Snellvillian Tornado, the 2005 Georgia Sleet Storm, the Georgia Heat Wave of 2006, the 2008 Atlanta Tornado, the 2009 Winter Storm, The Great Atlanta Floods of September 2009, The Great Christmas Blizzard of 2009 and the Major Cold Snap of winter 2009 & 2010. I have also attended the open house events at the National Weather Service in Peachtree City, Georgia in October 2008 and June 2011 where. I got to meet some interesting people like forecasters, hydrologists and even got to meet the friendly forecasters in the Southeast River Forecast Center part of the building then that spring in April 2009 we visited the 11 Alive News set at WXIA-TV in Atlanta, GA where. I got to meet Ted Hall for the first time and have had pictures made with Chris Holcomb at the weather desk and a picture of just me in front of the green wall with the 7 Day Forecast and also got to see other parts of the building that normally other people wouldn't see such as the control room. I have also attended the American Meteorological Society's 90th annual meeting and 9th annual weather fest that came to the Atlanta area in January 2010. It was a really interesting event. I even got to meet on camera meteorologist's such as Nick Walker from The Weather Channel and Paul Ossman from WXIA-TV in Atlanta. I even got to meet Dr. Jack Williams and even got a book signed by Mr. Williams titled "The Ultimate Guide To America's Weather" which is a really interesting and awesome book which will also increase in value year's down the road from now. I also believe that weather as a person plays a big roll in peoples lives from outdoor events such as baseball games, traveling or just laying on the beaches of Hawaii getting a sun tan. I have been a amateur meteorologist for more than 10 years since age 14. I have also received a special invitation from who is now a personal friend Kacy Collins Pollak to tour The Weather Channel in August 2010 where. I got to meet Stu Ostro for the first time
Jeremy, I meant to comment that if you are a "TV news weather reporter" I think it's great to see people who actually know something about what they are talking about doing holding that position. There are way too many "entertainers" on our West Coast stations who couldn't tell you the difference between Fahrenheit & Celsius or why you can have it pouring down rain and have humidity at less than 100%.
Thanks for your earlier comments and adding me as a friend also. Have a good weekend--watch out for that black ice.
Naw, I'll let you keep it. After reading your profile, I can tell you've had lots of experience and I really think you should keep it. After all, we here in the PNW probably sent it to you in the first place...just watch the Jet Streams!!!
I've always been fascinated with weather and had lots of "toys" like hand-held Sci-American and LaCrosse units. Took a dive into things a couple months ago (after studying things for nearly two years and a friends constant encouragement) bought both a Davis Vantage Vue (w/mobile mount for car) and also a Davis Vantage Pro2 (still need to install it) and take some time to figure out how to upload the data to my website.
Been enjoying looking at your photos while typing this message...very impressive! You've done a very nice job there Jeremy. Hope we will be "friends". John Christman
