Weatherman Dallas Raines Shares Strong Bond With Daughter Georgia
Dallas Raines may love all his children equally, but he seems to have a special bond with his daughter Georgia.
Dallas Raines, the American meteorologist, is as family-oriented as he is career-oriented. The 67-year-old has three daughters, and even though as a parent he loves all his children equally, he seems to share a special bond with his daughter Georgia.

Daughter Stands Up For Dad
The bond is evident from Raines' social media posts with Georgia. The beloved daughter had also demonstrated a strong connection with her father when she sent an email to the author of an article posted on SFGATE titled All-time Ridiculous Weatherman Names back in 2010.
According to a later blog post by the same outlet, Raines was ranked at number 1 for having the most ridiculous name for a weatherman. After thoroughly going through the article, Georgia wasted no time shutting up the writer by taking her father's side, after which the author was forced to move Raines from first to fourth position.
She added that her grandparents were still proud of the name they had given their son Dallas, who was honored by being named after a kind, gentle, and dearly-loved uncle. The writer had also been arrogant about Raines' weather school education, and the daughter gave the writer a piece of her mind on that too.
Clearly, being a daddy's girl, Georgia will never allow anybody to mock her father. The love between the father and daughter is also evident from their pictures, where they are seen hanging out together quite often. They have posted pictures together at Biltmore Chateau and Magic Castle, among other places on social media.
Dallas’s Wife Danielle Was Sentenced To Prison
While Dallas has never been in controversy for any of his own doings, he certainly has due to his wife. As reported by an outlet, his wife Danielle Raine tried to strangle their then-25-year-old daughter--which of their daughters it was, has not been revealed to the media.
The incident occurred in 2016 when Danielle was drunk on a significant amount of wine. For this, Danielle was sentenced to three years of probation and one year of drug rehabilitation.
