With all the excitement of the Big Game on Sunday, I forgot this. Happy belated birthday to John Jeffries. He took the 1st balloon observation in 1784. He was one of America's first weather observers.

You mean no one else observed the weather before that? I observe it everyday. Tomorrow we might have a wintry mix of rain, snow, sleet and freezing rain. We could have an inch of snow and sleet, .10" of ice is possible. See, I'm observing....I digress.

We commemorate his birth with National Weatherman's Day! Better a day late then not at all I say.

So if we see a weatherman's shadow, does that mean 6 more weeks of winter? Whoops, wrong holiday. In their honor, here are some pick-up lines that weathermen use.

I'm not the morning DJ.....Heyyy, wait a minute.

I predict a warm breeze...will blow in your ear.

It's gonna be cold today...but with you in my forecast, it will get warmer.

You spelled "forecast" wrong. There should be "U and I" in it.

If any of these works, then you must look like Jim Cantore. Although the line he would use is "Hi, I'm Jim Cantore." Happy NW Day!
