looking for a clip fom early 90s
« on: December 30, 2022, 07:55:49 PM »
thought I'd try here, but if there's somewhere else my inquiry should be posted, please educate me... I'm looking for a story TWC covered in the early 90s where there was a large storm off Nova Scotia pumping large waves south... TWC, I'm told, covered the surfers at Assateague Island, MD... I was not where I was supposed to be that day, but many people seemed to know I was at Assateague... I'd love to see what they saw, after all these years

thank you so much, happy new year!

no, unfortunately... my best guess is the fall of 91, maybe 92... most probably September, as it was still quite warm

hi Matt, hope your and all your followers' new year is going well

after reviewing some hurricane data from the early 90s, I've come to think it may have been hurricane Gustav in 1990 that brought us a lifetime of memories... if this is the case, the day was likely one of the last of August or first couple of September of 1990

hope this helps  :)

Thanks. I'll take a look and see what I can find.

hi Matt... I guess that path was a dead end?... upon further reflection, it seems to me the TWC visit to Assateague Island National Seashore coincided roughly with Mike Seidel's hiring at TWC... he was the local weather guy on Delmarva (Eastern Shore Delaware, Maryland, Virginia) and everyone was really excited for his big promotion from small market to national... he's from the next county over from Assateague, and he may remember, if he wasn't along on the actual visit... maybe it was him?... I'm not on facebook, but my wife is, I'll see if she can ask him  :smoke2:

Sorry, I came up empty. No live or recorded reports about Gustav.

thank you for trying... I realized it couldn't have been Gustav when I remembered friends speculating that TWC was there due to our local weather dude, Mike Seidel's recent hire there... so it had to be the fall of '92
