WELCOME to my brand new blog! My name is Nance' Burgin and I am one of KRBC's meteorologists. Something you may not know about me is that I am also a military spouse. My husband is a pilot in the Air Force and is currently stationed at Dyess AFB, here in Abilene.

A year ago, we were planning a move to Pope AFB in North Carolina, only hours away from our families in Florida. We were house hunting and everything when we were stunned with a change of duty station to Abilene - NOT just hours from home. After the news sunk in that we were being sent to Texas, I have to say, this girl was not happy. My husband and I were very content with being closer to Florida, where most of our families reside.

Last February I came to Abilene, begrudgingly, but now, although I still feel a little homesick from time to time; our move to Abilene has been a wonderful surprise. I have met so many genuinely nice people and have made great friends along the way...not to mention, I have a job I love!

Working in the field of television was not something that I dreamed about, but when one door closes, another opens, and I was provided with an opportunity to learn and now, I enjoy the work more than I ever thought I would!

Almost a year later I can say that although things don't always happen the way we hope and plan, they do happen for a reason. If the Air Force hadn't randomly sent us to Abilene then I may never have gotten the chance to meet all of you across a television screen.

Looking forward to the future! :)
