Sorry about the loss of Dan. I never knew him, but he sounded like a great guy which is apparent by the feelings I see here. Wish I'd signed up here earlier and had the chance to interact with him.

You know i've read just about every post about Dan over the last couple of days, and i thought that on this forum we may not agree on how strong or where a storm may go, or whether or not it will snow in Houston, but one thing that we could all agree on is that Dan touched the people he knew personally and those he never met in the most positive of ways.

I was very shocked when I opened up KHOU's webpage yesterday and read the article. I always remember having conversations with him on the phone when I called in my weather report. He was one of a kind! RIP Dan.

I'm just in a lot of shock and disbelief here, man... He was taken way too young

I first staggered upon this forum in late 2004. Since that time, Dan was definitely been a very inspiring and helpful person to know through my years of high school. No matter how silly and idiotic a question that I asked would seem, Dan would not hesitate to answer. I don't think he has really ever became agitated or angry at anyone on here (wish I could say the same thing about myself). He was never shy with helping out anyone, and he seemed like such a caring individual. We have all certainly lost one hell of a guy, and I'm sure Dan's footprints on this forum will never leave. He really is the reason why we are all here today. Back when he was the only admin and pro met on this forum, he was willing to help out and answer anyone, keeping a friendly, inviting attitude along the way that helped build up the forum to what it is today.

Although I was only able to meet with him during a short period several years ago, I can see from what others are saying about him in real life that he was indeed as he seemed behind the computer screen. It was a very fun time we all had back at the KHOU studio, and I only wish we could have met once again...

Remember his favorite saying "Pandora's box"? Or "Dan's magic?"? Good times, man... So many events we've all been through together -- when I have time, I would love to go back and relieve some of those times. Just too many things to remember about right now.

I know that what he was battling was a very painful disease, and I am relieved that the pain is now gone. For that, we can all be happy for.

RIP Dan. And, thank you for everything

"...suddenly you were gone...
from all the lives you left your mark upon..."
My thoughts and prayers go out to the Meador family, the KHOU family and all the wonderful folks on this forum. Dan was one of a kind and we were truly blessed to have him. I never had the opportunity to meet him, I don't interact much on the forum, but just like all of us, I still feel like I've lost a friend. You will not be forgotten.
Mention this to me
Mention something, mention anything...
...and watch the weather change.

I had the pleasure of working with Dan for many years at KHOU. He was always a professional with a keen sense of humor...both qualities that are sorely missed by everyone who knew him.

There's no doubt that Dan is in a place with a great view of the weather.
