Publisher's Summary

Most occasionally glance up at the sky if they hear a rumble of thunder, if they notice the wind picking up, or if a pretty sunset has taken over before dusk. Others keep an eye on the sky early and often, every day, with eyes of fascination, a mind of curiosity, and a deep desire to learn about the wonders of the Earth's atmosphere. People like James Spann.

From his earliest days growing up in rural South Alabama, his eyes have been on the sky with wonder. Through challenging situations in his young life, he took the love of weather and turned it into a long, rewarding career as a professional meteorologist. Most know him from social media, television, radio, or the weekly show for weather nerds, WeatherBrains.

But, most don't know his real story. This autobiography allows folks to ride along with James Spann on his long and winding life journey. They will learn things they don't know about him, experience deep details concerning the historic weather events that shaped his career, and most importantly, learn some things that just might help them in their lives and in their darkest days.

The book was written not only to document a long career in weather and the events that shaped it, but to serve as an encouragement and blessing to those who read/listen to it.

Great read!

I loved every second of this book. James Spann is a childhood hero of mine. He’s a hero for a lot of people in Alabama. I enjoyed hearing about his early life and how he got started in the weather business.

entertaining life story

This book is the life story of James Spann, an Alabama meteorologist. It is not a "self-help" book but may be inspiring to some readers. I enjoyed it mostly due to my personal experiences with the weather events described and my appreciation for James Spann from my younger years in Alabama.

Weatherbrains ‘fanboy’

I’ve grown to trust and respect this man from being a loyal Weatherbrains ‘fanboy’. Mr. Spann is always humble without false modesty while usually being the most knowledgeable and accomplished person in most settings. Always quick to shower praise and credit on others- when there’s something he doesn’t understand- he tirelessly does whatever is required to become proficient in that, too. Or, as with the social sciences and his appreciation for their efforts and talents, he leans on their expertise and utilizes everything from them that might help save lives. Lastly, I’ll say that this book shows he has a Servant’s Heart and we are all better off for his efforts.

Inspiring...loved it.

Inspiring, humble and honest words from a voice we've all grown to live and trust. I read the book, but hearing it from the man himself made it even more personal and real. Thank you for sharing your life stories with us, and for the compassion you have in protecting all those "within the sound of your voice."

Spann Is The Man

As a decades-long fan of James Spann, I already knew many facets of his career. But this book goes much deeper with anecdotes and life lessons I had never heard before. It is humorous, touching, inspiring, and entertaining.
