Growing up in Oklahoma (Tornado Alley) Stretch learned to keep a close eye on the weather. She cares most about making sure everyone knows when rough weather is coming and what to do about it. What's in her junk drawer? A broken barometer, a thermometer, a Swiss army knife, fuses, candles, flashlights and a NOAA weather radio.
Stretch's hobbies: rock collecting, bird watching, creating butterfly gardens, picking and drying wildflowers.
Her favorite movie: The Wizard of Oz (but she hated the twister.)
