I am raising money to help pay for the monthly tools I use to help me forecast the weather. This will help me provide better forecasts to my followers and hopefully get a real website (instead of a Facebook page) up and running soon! I spend the majority of my free time forecasting the weather out of pure passion, for free. I will never require donations, but they would absolutely help me a lot! Even as a non-professional, the many subscriptions to the weather forecasting tools I use get expensive! I have been on Facebook for 5 years now and would love to expand to a real website!
I currently pay (marked by **) or would like to pay monthly/yearly fees for:
Radar services: RadarScope Pro Tier 2 - $14.99/month or $99.99/year **
Real-time data feeds: GREarth via AllisonHouse: $14.99/month or $180/year **
Computer model website subscriptions: WeatherBell: $24.99/month or $240/year **
Fastest Model Data: StormVistaWxModels Hobbyist Model Package: $20/month or $240/year
Best Quality Weather Models: F5 Weather Pro Package: $14.95/month or $180/year
Creating a Website?: $???.??
I will never ever require donations, but any and all would be greatly, greatly appreciated! Weather and helping others prepare for it has been my passion since I was a child. These donations will help me push my passion to another level! I have a full-time job so I know I don't always have a ton of time to put in, but I do spend a lot of my free time making forecasts and watching impending storms. Also, recently, the work hours at my place of employment have been cut pretty drastically. This has made it a bit harder to spend the extra money on the necessary tools I use. These funds could help me continue to put the same time and effort into tracking the weather and making better forecasts for my followers!
Please only donate if you are able and have the extra funds! Thank you guys and gals so much for supporting my dream! I couldn't do it without you! I love my Southern Blue Ridge Weather community! It's the best weather community on social media!
