Each weekday morning Don Day of Day Weather joins me for a live interview on radio stations across the region, about the region's current weather and forecast.

But if you think he just is a guy giving weather forecasts from his office, you've not heard the entire story. Don actually leads a very interesting life as a weatherman. 

Now and then he lets me know that he's out of town

Usually, we worry that Don being out of town means he knows that bad weather is coming. We are usually wrong about that.

Recently he told me he was going to be in Roswell New Mexico. Naturally, I had a long list of UFO jokes for him.

Actually, he was there as part of a team that set a new world record for a four-man skydiving team.

This was a four-man HALO (high-altitude, low-opening) jump.

The jump was actually for a good cause.

“They are specially trained to parachute behind enemy lines to provide medical assistance,” Day said.

“And they skydive in.

So, what (Connor) wanted to do is raise awareness and raise funds for the Special Operations Warrior Fund.”

The nonprofit raises money to benefit the spouses and children of pararescue specialists killed in action. (Cowboy State Daily).

Don Day has been called on as an expert in many missions like this.

In the video below you can watch me interview Don Day at his very unusual office.

Wyoming's weatherman is actually kind of a big deal.

His work shapes our Western lives every day.

But when you are not hearing him on the radio you might be surprised to find out where he works and who else he has been working for.

Don Day is actually the local radio weather voice for 70 radio stations across the West, not just your local station.

You likely know his web address because you've heard him mention DayWeather.com about a million times.

He is also a weather consultant for several large projects, including when Red Bull sponsored Felix Baumgartner's historic freefall from the edge of space.

Don was also the weather consultant for the famous skydive without a parachute.

So you might think someone like Don works out of a massive weather gathering facility in downtown Denver.

If that is what you imagined, then you will be surprised to learn that his offices and studios are in Cheyenne, Wyoming, in the old control tower at the airport.

The video above is our attempt to find out who Don Day is, the important work he does for so many people and corporations, and how he got his start.

I still can't get over the knowledge his office is the old airport control tower in Cheyenne.
