October 12, 2010 — The Weather Network's Director of Broadcast Operations took to the skies on Saturday for his own skydiving adventure.
Sunny skies, mild temperatures and a brave employee at The Weather Network. The perfect combination for a skydiving adventure over the Thanksgiving long weekend.
Director of Broadcast Operations, Kiko Grusecki, decided to test his nerves on Saturday as he flew over Grand Bend. While many Ontarians used their Thanksgiving weekend to relax and visit family, Kiko wanted to take advantage of the ripe conditions.
Officials say light wind and little cloud cover is important before taking the dive. Thunderstorms are especially dangerous to skydivers as they're usually accompanied by strong winds and updrafts, which could bring a diver into levels of the atmosphere with little oxygen.
Luckily, it was warm and dry across much of southern Ontario throughout the weekend, making for perfect weather to take the plunge.
