In the words of Teddy KGB from Rounders, pay this man his money. Honestly get this guy the weather emmy! I want to move to Baltimore just to watch him deliver the forecast every night. Normally I turn on channel 4 at 10pm, get bored, turn it off with the intention of going back for sports, then forget about sports until 13 seconds after it's over. It's my own personal news cycle of shame. But if Jim Kosek were my weather man? I'd be locked and loaded for the entire 30 minutes. If you are an anchor on this show how do you even go on after that performance? It's gold Jerry! Gold!
On a sidenote how awesome were snow days when you were in school? You'd watch guys like Jim Kosek talk about pounds of snow about to drop from the skies and wait for your parents to wake you up and tell you that you didn't have to wake up (wait what?). Then it was a day jam packed with Nintendo 64 and building snowforts more Nintendo 64. Anyway I guess in the real world all this means is that you have to get up earlier to shovel, clean off your car, and prepare to slide all over the road as a 5 minute commute becomes half an hour. Growing up=overrated. Bonus word: shovel.
PS: I've had this video emailed to me by a bunch of people (and by 'bunch of people' I mean 'my mom') and have been waiting to get a snow storm strong enough to justify putting it up. And wouldn't you know it? Mother nature green lit this blog by dumping 10 inches of snow on us. But that almost seems weak compared to 14 TO 22 INCHES OF SNOW!! And that's just the first problem!
PSS: I totally fell into the trap of battling snow drifiting that Jim was talking about while I was helping my parents shovel last night (I figure they paid for thousands of dollars of tuition, I shovel twice a year. Even Steven.). After 20+ years of shoveling I should know that when it drifts once, there's no point in re-shoveling. But I'm also German. I can't let anything go. I'll stay out here and shovel all night if I have to. You won't win snow.
PSSS: Snow won.
