Chris Shaffer Family

Shaffer’s great uncle Wilbur was struck and killed by lightning while farming in southern Minnesota in the summer of 1952. His family vehicle was once chased by a tornado near Maplewood, Minnesota, and one December on the way to Grandma and Grandpa’s house, his family spent the night snowed in at a church in Winthrop, Minnesota, praying the blizzard would let up so they could get to Redwood Falls and unbox their presents the next morning. Shaffer and his wife have family members all around the Twin Cities. And it’s natural to forecast for the entire region with family in Pipestone, Willmar, St. Cloud, Sartell, and Blooming Prairie just to mention a few.

He loves the weather because it is always changing and is a constant challenge, much like raising his three daughters, who are as pretty as a sunset, loud as a thunderstorm, and strong as a straight-line wind.
