They Work Hard for the Money

I’m so proud of the tv station where I work. I don’t say that often, being semi-cynical about our news department. But this winter, they’ve been proving any skeptics wrong. Our usually-mild Commonwealth of Virginia has suffered a rough winter so far – three major snowstorms in a state where one semi-major snowstorm is par for the course. And they’ve all happened on Fridays and Saturdays, for some strange reason. (I remember several years ago when we got snow on every Thursday for awhile. Virginia likes to keep things orderly, apparently.)

A typical sight

Our news department has risen to the challenge and produced live Saturday morning news programs each snow weekend to keep the viewers informed about what was going on in the community – plowing updates, road closures, road conditions plus a little bit of fun here and there.

Len & the obligatory snowball

The entire news team has been involved, most of them freezing their butts off with live remote reports. They’ve done a really good job too. None of our competition has done as much so I’ve had an easy time making proof-of-performance (bragging) promos to air.

I hope the bad weather will leave us alone after this, but it is good to know that my co-workers are people I can be proud to work with.

    You weather guys are as brave as those in “Day After Tomorrow” who reported live from the the Los Angeles streets while the tornadoes blasted the city!
    How I hate weather.
    Keep the posting alive, Bunny, you’re great at it.
