Get 2 Know Me
- Houston has been home since April 22, 1989. People say they’ve watched me their whole life, and if they’re under 30, that’s actually true!
- I’ve been with Kevin Gilliard since 1995 and married since 12/12/12 (we picked that date so I could remember it). We have a son, Morgan. We’re down to one pup now, Ocean, a white schnauzer.
- I wrote a book, Swabbed & Found, about my DNA journey to find my biological family. Meeting them was unforgettable. If you want more, read my book!
Attitude is everything.
A favorite quote from my mom, Pat Billingsley
Advice for aspiring journalists:
Don’t overthink your future because none of us knows how long it will last or where it will take us.
Simply follow your passion and be a person others can count on.

Frank's Weather or Not: Houston's Weather Outlook this Week
Dallas got swallowed whole by a rain bomb two years ago and yesterday they had strong winds again. I thought this was from yesterday but reader Mark Kariel pointed out my mistake! The pic above has been 'dolled up' but the original of Toddy Jack's is right here and just as impressive:

Frank's Weather or Not: 5 for 5 Early Starts!
ANDREA we hardly knew ye this week as our first storm of the 2019 Hurricane Season came and went! A subtropical storm (still counts) Andrea lasted less than 24 hours Monday to Tuesday but what is significant is that an early start can signal at least an average season if not above average. Average by the way, is 12 storms, 6 becoming hurricanes and 2 becoming Major Cat 3+ hurricanes. Or 12-6-2.

Frank's Weather or Not: A Museum, A Moon, and a Model (or two)

Frank's Weather or Not: When the Moon Hits Your Eye....
We got Jackie and Patrick married last Saturday night come hail or high water! The sun actually peeked out just in time after a wet day and nothing stopped a memorable and fabulous event. The photo above from left to right is Patrick, me, Kevin, Jackie and her dad, Steven. So, you might want an explanation of just where THIS came from:

Frank's Weather or Not: A Mess, A Moon and A Marriage!
We've see the return of our May Mess this week, that's for sure, and part of the reason is the strong flow of Pacific moisture. I've talked about this before. We can thank, or not, El Nino. The latest is in and look at those orange colors in the Pacific---that's El Nino's warm waters!
