  1. Best ever going to miss you. Met your dad the Colonel down in Bend, very nice man. Said how proud of you he was of you. Thank you for explaining the weather so expertly to us. SMc

  2. Thanks Walter:

    Always looked forward to your forecast and your keen perspective. It will take a while before I can believe in anybody forecasting the way I relied and trusted in you. Enjoy your family, always see about them.


  3. Walter,
    will always miss how you report the weather and genuine care for the people of the PNW. More importantly your warm and funny personality made me look forward to the news each day. Enjoy your family and God bless!

    McCleary, Wa.

  4. You will be missed. I remember you doing your broadcast on or near Halloween one time at our Halloween decorated home in WS.
    That was so much fun.

    Best of wishes to your new adventure.
