Weather Watcher - Anna, IL

Name:  Matt Wettig
Town:  Anna, IL
Number of years as Weather Watcher:  Since 1989
Most interesting weather:  The most interesting weather Matt has seen was the snow of early 1979. They had 25 inches of snow in Anna.  He remember the snow paralyzing the region. Jonesboro hill between Anna and Jonesboro drifted shut with approximately 12 to 14 feet of snow on it.
Something extra:  Matt has always been interested in the weather.  My grandfather was a civil defense volunteer. I remember sitting in the attic of his 2 story house when I was just a little tike and watching the clouds. I can remember spotting a funnel cloud from his home in Murphysboro. I also love to fish, hunt, and garden.
