Dick Goddard Is 80 Today

Posted By on Thu, Feb 24, 2011 at 9:45 AM


We normally have blueberries on our cereal. Delicious and nutritious. But this morning we woke up and poured a healthy portion of woolly bears on our Frosted Flakes in honor of one Dick Goddard, Cleveland's resident weatherman, badass, and lover of animals.

Dick turns 80 today, which may or may not be his real age. There's a decent chance he's a cyborg, a fact that would explain why he's so damn good at predicting the weather, being a machine like those that create the weather and all.

Fox 8 has a page up where you can leave birthday wishes for Dick, but you can also use it as an arena to beg him to adopt that bastard cat that you don't want anymore, the one that's been shedding all over your couch. And the PD has a nice piece on Goddard's career, which you can find here.

Love ya, Dick. Happy birthday, sir.

We’re keeping you informed…
...and it’s what we love to do. From local politics and culture to national news that hits close to home, Scene Magazine has been keeping Cleveland informed for years.

It’s never been more important to support local news sources, especially as we all deal with the ramifications of the coronavirus pandemic. Almost everything Scene is about -- our stories, our events, our advertisers -- comes down to getting together. With events on hold, and no print distribution for the foreseeable future, every little bit helps.

A free press means accountability and a well-informed public, and we want to keep our unique and independent reporting available for many, many years to come.

If quality journalism is important to you, please consider a donation to Scene. Every reader contribution is valuable and so appreciated, and goes directly to support our coverage of critical issues and neighborhood culture. Thank you.
