Cantore putting his job on the line
« on: July 18, 2008, 10:37:24 PM »
Tonight on EE at around 10:20 PM ET, Jim said that if the disturbance off the southeast coast isn't a tropical depression or greater by the 11 PM ET advisory, he will switch professions. :footinmouth:

So if this thing doesn't get any stronger or weakens, I don't think we'll see Jim on Monday...  :fear:

I'm sure Jim will be on the first flight out to the Carolinas as soon as the landfall site is known. The question is: now that TWC is in HD, will they flip out and go all Storm Alert on us for this small storm?

Thank goodness for Tropical Storm Cristobal. I would have hated to see Cantore leave.  :P

(And since when do we say "thank goodness" for tropical storms?  :rofl2:)

He was (most likely) being sarcastic people!

It's nice to see that TWC might stop whining about the drought in the southeast.
