I’ve wanted to do this for a while. The geofffox.com question booth is open!
If you have anything you’d like to know about me, ask. Leave it in the comments for this entry (Facebook readers, please use the link to my blog and ask there). I will answer as many questions as I can… and by that I mean the ones that aren’t too embarrassing toward people I know or contain secrets my bosses expect me to keep.
This may be fun. It may be a bust. Who knows? I do know when people meet me they often have questions to ask.
Go ahead. Fire away!

If you woke up and were 18 again, which career path would you pursue?
Geoff, what storm in CT was the most memorable for you?
Are you in any way related to Sonny Fox, who was the host of Wonderama?
It seems like I have been watching you on the weather and listening to your corny jokes forever. How long have you been at Channel 8, sorry, News 8, and how old where you when you started?
Are you as personable in “real” life as you are in “cyber” life? As in, if you say came into my job as a customer (I work @ Lowes) and I said “Hi, I’m one of your FB friends.”…would you give me the time of day?
I always wondered why news 8 didn’t have a little fishing report in the weather forecast. There are lots of fisherman not just boaters and it would be helpful. Do you think you would be able to relate a fishing report in with your weather?
Do you keep in touch with Bob Tirado?
How has weather casting changed sense you cane to WTNH
Let me revise my specific question above. Who among the personalities we might remember (on air) at Channel 8 did you consider to be close mentors when you first arrived?
Geoff – I’ve always been under the impression that wind doesn’t affect the reading on a thermometer. On tonights forecast you said that the wind coming on shore from the south will make the temp there about 5
Ok, I have to admit, that since you had gotten your contacts, my boyfriend just got them for himself as well.
Since my question about you being related to Sonny Fox (one of my favorite shows to watch when we went to NY. I still to this day sing “Has anybody here have an AArdvark”.
So, I will ask if it’s ok how did you get into your fundraising?
I sent you a letter back in the early 90’s when I was in elementary school (I believe I still have it!) asking for help with a science fair project on lightning. Do you get a lot of letters from kids on related topics?
Are there any online schooling you can take to become a meteorologist? Can you reccomend anything for someone possibly interested in shifting career paths. I would like to work for the NWS. Thanks
Thank you so much for a chance to ask you questions. If you had the chance to fly through a hurricane again, would you? Which one of the adventures that you went on years ago was your favorite?
It is my understanding there is only one sky. So why do you weather people say “skies will be cloudy”?
How do you feel about Bob Lacey giving Sheri Lynch an opportunity to be his gold best friend–a position you have held for many years? Would you pull the wick from his ear if he asked? 🙂
How much of the work do the on-air personalities do when determining the weather? Is it a job where you filter the analysis from a Weather center (or techies)… or are you doing the leg work yourself? I’ve always been curious about that.
Here at the Dallas/Ft. Worth TX station I work at our Weather guessers have been accused of being Weather Nazis when any rain starts to fall. They take over and viewers miss their programs. Do you ever get comments like that?
Do you find pocket Aces get cracked more often online or at the table? And how do you handle the frustration when they do?
Geoff – what led to your interest in the American Diabetes Association?
