Former KTUL meteorologist Don Woods touched a lot of people with his drawings of Gusty, a cartoon character that helped illustrate what Oklahomans could expect from their weather.

Since publishing a story last month about Don's health, we've heard from many people who have their own Don Woods hand-drawn Gusty. So, it got us thinking -- wouldn't it be incredible to see all of those Gusty drawings?

Don drew Gusty for more than 45 years before his retirement in 1989. So, that means there are thousands of them out there. We're asking those of you out there who have a Don Woods Gusty to send them to us here and we'll display them for all to see here on our website.

We're sure Don would love to see them all.

If you have a Gusty, send a scan or picture to gusty@ktul.com.
