Omaha, NE - Jim Flowers and his wife Barb have lived in the same home in Omaha for more than thirty years. They've raised two sons here, now ages 28 and 30.
Jim grew up outside of Cleveland, Ohio. He met his wife while they were in high school. Their friends set them up on a blind date, but Barb thought the setup involved a different guy! Still something clicked, and the two will mark their 35th wedding anniversary this July.
His wife says Jim's passion for weather runs deep and doesn't stop when he leaves the office. Barb said he's always checking the weather, "We know when to leave for vacations, and we know what the plane rides are going to be like. And the boys--our sons--say, 'Dad, I get two bucks every time you look on the radar screen on your phone.'"
The Flowers family loves living in Omaha. Jim said, "The work ethic is very strong here, there's a very strong sense of community here that doesn't exist in a lot of other areas."
He's proud to be part of this community even if the call letters have changed. KMTV Action 3 News is proud to have him on the Weather Alert Team.
