About Our Founder
My name is Erick Kirchner, the founder of WeatherFix, and my dream one day is to be a meterologist. I am a trained Skywarn spotter and I am a Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador. I enjoy following all aspects of the weather. I have much to learn about the weather and I am committed to gain all the knowledge I can about it. My goal is to gather data that will one day be a life saving tool to help in severe weather conditions.
I am young, but I appreciate it if you would follow me and watch how I put the things that I am learning into practice.
Who We Cover
We provide in-depth weather coverage to the Cumberland, Maryland area, which is Allegany, Mineral, Garrett, Somerset, Bedford, and northern Hampshire counties (highlighted in green on map). We also generally cover the tri-state area outside of the Cumberland,MD area (highlighted in red). Our HQ is in Cumberland, Maryland.
