I am a journalist from East Tennessee. Currently, my wife and I reside near the Big South Fork National River & Recreation Area, where I work as editor of the hometown newspaper and she is an elementary school teacher. We have three children, twins Toby and Rachel, and baby Cooper. Scooter — our hound mix — lives here, too. So do Popeye and Chubs, our mouse-catchers who are not particularly fond of me (nor I of them).

I am a political enthusiast but an independent…that doesn’t mean that I don’t adhere to political ideology, only that I’m not beholden to any political party or candidate.

In addition to politics, I blog about my hometown, the weather, outdoor lifestyles, the University of Tennessee and whatever else catches my attention.

This blog was launched in 2004 as a blog about my hobby of meteorology. The focus of the blog eventually shifted but the weather remains a major subject matter around here, especially during times of wintry or severe weather.

    Mr. Garrett,

    I came across your blog while googling Dooley and Gruden. I’ve read a few of your posts, and like your blog very much. I shall continue to check back often.

    Have a great day!
