Yup, it’s raining!

From the time I was 2 years old, I have dreamt of nothing but becoming a vascular surgeon. Okay, that’s not exactly true, but I am a Weatherman. I tell lies on the air every day, except I call it weather reporting.

In Elementary School, shockingly enough, I was the Class Clown. I have always had the amazing ability to cause a ruckus. In fact, my 2nd grade teacher Rose Boyer told me that I would grow up to be a game show host. She wasn’t far off. I should have made her my agent back then!

I have forecasted hail stones the size of baby armadillos in the Great Plains. I have run away from tornadoes and tropical storms in Southwest Florida, and have made snowmen in Central Pennsylvania.

I love weather. It is fascinating, ever-changing, and challenging. I got hooked on weather when I was a little Jeff Robbins; watching thunderstorms with my brother from our garage. The flashes of lightning darting across the sky, combined with the rumbles of thunder, have made me quite uneasy. So I am here to face and conquer my fear.

I have come to Hurricane Alley for 3 reasons. First, I love forecasting tropical systems. Second, I love drinks in hurricane glasses. And third, I have always wanted Susan and LBJ’s autographs.

WGNO seems like the perfect home for a guy with a “Twisted” sense of humor like me. You can find me weeknights at 5 and 6pm on “News With A Twist” and alongside Curt Sprang weeknights at 10pm. I promise to give you the weather and a smile every single night as long as you promise not to throw tomatoes at the screen. Hit me up on my Facebook, Sweet Cheeks at http://www.facebook.com/jeffrobbinswgno.

When my friends and family come to visit, the first place I take them … is the Sheraton. Hey…it’s more comfortable than the floor.

On Saturday nights you will find me … at the Cheesecake Factory in Friendswood, Texas. It’s the closest one to New Orleans and I am a man who enjoys his Vanilla Bean Cheesecake.

I’m known around the newsroom for … my constant serious demeanor….yeah right LOL.

My greatest TV moment is a toss-up between discussing whether the color on the radar was hot pink or fuchsia with my Chief Meteorologist during severe weather coverage or when Howard Stern played a clip of me on his radio show.

A TV moment I’d like to forget is when I got into a Hooters Outfit for a story. Who I am kidding…I was sexy and I knew it!

The most important lesson I have learned through my work as a meteorologist is that it really does not rain and cats and dogs. Turns out it’s just a myth. Who woulda thunk it?

I give back to my community with laughter.

My favorite Hornet is LeBron James. Hey, one can still dream can’t he?

My favorite Saint is Reggie Bush. He dated Kim Kardashian. Good job!

Perfect French Quarter Fest Weather Tomorrow, But What About The Weekend?
