MM’s Mon Wx Forecast

This morning we remember a beautiful soul who met her Creator this Monday morning. Lisa Lane is such a dear friend of mine and one the world will be so much darker without. A devout Christian, Lisa lived her life with purpose and it showed each and every day. I had the great honor of knowing Lisa through my best friend Matilda. The day I officiated Matilda’s wedding was one of the happiest of my life and one in which I never saw Lisa lose that beautiful smile. She was so happy! The picture below is from her surprise retirement party that her family put together for her a few years ago. Lisa enjoyed decades of teaching in Morgan County and impacted the lives of everyone she came into contact with. The Meteorologist Mark fan club will never be the same. Lisa so bravely fought cancer for the past several months.

The fight is over, Lisa, and you can rest now.

Til we meet again.

2004 – After making its infamous loop east of the Bahamas, Hurricane Jeanne made landfall the night of September 26th, 2004.

Jeanne produced extensive damage along the east central Florida coast from Volusia County south to Martin County. The highest wind gusts occurred over extreme Southern Brevard County as well as Indian River County with 110 – 120 mph estimates at the peak of the storm.
