CLEVELAND, Ohio -- It was a day of surprises for a weather legend!

Tuesday, Fox 8 celebrated Dick Goddard's birthday.

Over the past couple of weeks, we’ve been searching for viewers who have adopted a pet from one of Dick’s segments over the years.  Tuesday, we shared some of those photos.

That was just part of his surprise.

We also unveiled a one-of-a kind tribute never before seen on Cleveland TV; an ice sculpture of Dick, thanks to Elegant Ice.

And, what's a birthday without cake? We surprised Dick with a beautiful cake, thanks to Wild Flower Bakery in Rocky River.

Thank you to all of our Fox 8 viewers for making today such a success!
