Issaquah resident shares his passion for weather
When rare thunderstorms pounded the area in early September, Issaquah resident Justin Shaw was not staring out the windows of his Talus home, marveling at the lightning strikes.
He was staring at a computer screen, tracking the storms’ paths and experiencing the extreme weather virtually with the more than 1,100 followers of his Seattle-weather themed Twitter account.
“It was almost more fun to be on Twitter talking about the storms than actually watching them,” he said. “It’s like this big party with all of these weather nerds uniting together.”
