Title: Cantore's got it right
Post by: shadyjay on August 08, 2008, 09:59:04 PM
For those Evening Edition watchers out there, you may have heard Jim Cantore talk a lot lately about Vermont and the horrendous weather we've been having all summer up here.  He showed flood footage in VT earlier this week, drove by it today and it is bad.  Every day since around June, rain has fallen, in some places, 3-4" each day.  Rivers are wild and high.  Fields are flooded.  Farmers are hurting.  Tourism is hurting.  Our last rain-free weekend was July 4. 

Cantore is a native of White River Jct, VT and I love it when he talks about what's going on in my neck of the woods.  And when we see weather events happening on TV, its difficult to picture it in person.  Well, its real, and thanks to Jim for the "heads up".

I've never had reason to doubt the reality of anything when Jim talks about it, or worse yet is on location. When it comes to being on location, you know what they say about Jim-when he's around, look out!  :D

Well, what's wrong with Jim being on location?
