Traveling Trey

Now old enough to vote (#18), the Possumblog Thursday Three® can be found this week at Larry Anderson's Kudzu Acres.

1. Can you name three good things about Southern weather in August? Air Conditioning doesn't count!

Three things? Ok, how about...

No wait. That's no good. Ok, how about...

No. That's no good either. Shoot.

August, you say? Hmmm...

I can only think of ONE thing good about Southern weather in August...it only lasts 31 days.

2. What do you consider to be the best time of the year weather-wise to be a Southerner?

Late September and early October. It's still bright and sunny, but not hot enough to melt you into a puddle of stinky goo. The nights are cool and crisp. Fall is better than Spring since we tend to have more in the way of thunderstorms, lightning (Hey! I spelled it right the first time!) and hail in the Spring.

3. Who is the most manic weather person tornado wise? There's extra credit for a good description so the rest of us can get an idea of their work. For example, one of our local prognosticators appears to actually cheer for the tornado and insists in standing outside in the rain to do his forecast of partly cloudy.

I couldn't tell you. Like I said the other day, the weather reporting just leaves my brain numb. So, instead of answering the question, (surprise, surprise) I'll give you some weather reporter/meteorologist 'best of's.

Best name - David Finfrock (Channel 5 - NBC) (say it three times real fast!)

Best schtick - Troy Dungan - always wears a bowtie (Channel 8 - ABC) (No link since Channel 8 is so STINKING proud of their site you can't even look at non-news without registering - and you know much I love registering)

Best looking - Kristine Kahanek (Channel 11 - CBS) (Noticably missing from her bio is her stint at Channel 8 - they parted ways with a wee bit of animosity if I recall correctly)
