Chikage Windler, chief meteorologist at CBS Austin, has seen a lot of crazy weather over the last year, but even with our hurricanes, snow and ice, the weather here isn’t quite as intense to keep up as in her native Oklahoma.

Chikage has spent two decades forecasting the weather in cities across the U.S., but in this week’s episode of “I Love You So Much: The Austin360 Podcast,” she explained why Austin is the perfect place for her to raise her kids and be challenged in her field. The avid runner and Facebook livestreamer joined hosts Omar L. Gallaga and Addie Broyles to talk about raising two kids in Austin while also keeping the city informed about breaking weather news at all hours of the day.
