Are we ready for the storm tonight? Everybody is beaten down. Whenever we put anything out there on Twitter, within minutes we get endless retweets and responses, saying things like “No’ and “I can’t take it anymore” and “I’m going to move!”
Sometimes they direct their fury at you. That does happen, yes. We get a lot of expletives. Somebody’s got to take the blame. They’re not quite killing the messenger yet, but I am looking over my shoulder.
Eric Spitznagel interviewed John Davitt, the chief meteorologist at New York 1 News, about what it’s like to cover the weather on days when all everyone wants to talk about is the weather (have you heard, another snowstorm is coming! And all the flights are being cancelled!).
But also, there are some people out there who are so frustrated about the weather that they take it out on the weather people. Tough job, unless you’re in a place that’s always sunny (Southern California?).
