Over the years, viewers have told me to have sex with myself and some have even implied that I’ve been intimate with my mother.
But those love notes are few and far between compared with some of the messages sent to the weathermen today. These go way beyond the old, “Hey, who else gets paid to be wrong?” routine. Rude is one thing; vicious is another.
I know almost all of the weather people at the Connecticut stations. From Brad, Bob, Ryan and Darren…to Geoff and his crew…Bruce and his guys…and Joe and Garrett…they’re all good people who take their science seriously.
When a forecast doesn’t pan out as they expect, no one feels worse than they do. And I guarantee you that today they feel very bad. And very frustrated.
Even if your day got screwed up when it didn’t necessarily have to (mine did too), I just thought you should know.
