Did you like the picture on our home page? We owe it to Schmitty the Weather Dog and meteorologist Ron Trotta.

 

Originally a producer for ABC, career winds blew him in another direction, into the field of meteorology where with the help of Schmitty the Weather Dog became New York’s most engaging prognosticators.

 

Schmitty and Ron visit schools and public events throughout the NYC metro area and beyond, engaging children in discussions about weather and helping them learn about earth science in general.

 

In fact Schmitty is a best seller in bookstores. The story of how Schmitty and Ron met has been beautifully illustrated in an engaging children’s book that is available for sale, along with other cute ‘New Yorkie’ clothing at the New Yorkie Store.
