About this site
“Weathering Heights” provides a sporadically-published set of insights and opinions about news, current culture and everyday occurrences with a touch of weather observation.
It is written by longtime journalist and editor William M. Dowd (just “Bill” or “Mr. Dowd” to his best friends) from the perspective of being “above it all” — living atop a mountain overlooking the Hudson River in Upstate New York.
The site has been around for more than a decade and a half, but was recently re-launched with this new design.
