Beyond the Green Screen: Measuring Up on Camera
When I write my blog I try to write something of interest to others. Usually I think of questions viewers have asked that may or may not be weather related. One thing that seems to be of interest to a lot of people is my height.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been asked how tall I am. If only I had a nickel for each time! I don’t mind the question or mind answering it but it’s interesting (is that a good word for it?) to know that it’s a hot topic when meeting someone for the first time. I’ve even had people call the weather center and ask for my height because they had a bet going with a friend!
Honestly, I’m not quite sure how tall I am. I can’t remember the last time I was measured at the Doctor’s office. Maybe it’s because I’m done growing? I usually say between 5’1” and 5’2”. Then someone stands beside me to compare their height.
I do want to point out that I work with really tall people. There is a box specifically for me to stand on behind the weather center and to the right of the main anchor desk. I also wear flat shoes most of the time. I wear heels, but they get so uncomfortable when you have to do a lot of walking during the day. Short people problems.
