How a weather forecaster may look like:

I grew up watching this guy. Congrats to him on a long and respected career.

Not to hard to be a weather guy when the forecast is snow 10 months out of the year.

The Canadian Peter Code was based on the much older British Articles of Knobery. The BAK were just a slight update of the ancient Magna Wankus, thought to be the first set of laws relating to state-sanctioned genital nicknames.

But you have to be able to distinguish between thin snow and thick snow, light snow and heavy snow, sludgy snow, brittle snow, snow that came in flurries, snow that came in drifts, snow that came in on the bottom of your neighbor's boots all over your nice clean igloo floor, the snows of winter, the snows of spring, the snows you remember from your childhood that were so much better than any of your modern snow, fine snow, feathery snow, hill snow, valley snow, snow that falls in the morning, snow that falls at night, snow that falls all of a sudden just when you were going out fishing, and snow that despite all your efforts to train them, the huskies have pissed on.  Therein lies the challenge.

I guess it only SEEMS like John Coleman (on KUUUUUSI!) has been doing the weather for fifty years.

Wrong, Dick Goddard has been in tv weather forecasting for 53 years (started after graduating in 1960 and is still on the air, interesting before he graduated he did weather forecasting in the military including nuclear testing in the Pacific)

The weatherman is DEAD! I KILLED the weatherman! His STRENGTH is in me!

What I have taken away from this thread is that if your name is slang for penis, you can expect a long career as a weatherman.

"On Dec. 3, 2012, Peter became CBC Radio One's morning meteorologist, switching roles with fellow CBC meteorologist Kalin Mitchell."

Translation: We booted the 70 year old from TV over to radio, and replaced him with a young whippersnapper less than half his age.

Yes, Cleveland, Philly, Cleveland, he has 51 years with just one station.

I did not know he did the weather.

I worked with him when he was at ATV and again now that he is at CBC Halifax. The guy is a class act and he deserves all of the honours that come his way.

I wonder how far along Dick Goddard is. He is on Fox News in Cleveland, and I know that his meteorologist license is 81 or something. He is ancient, too, and is pretty much a local celebrity. He has gotta be pretty close to the Canuck.

This is the perfect storm of a boring thread.  Canada + weather forecaster + duration record

Well by the holy lord dyin' Jesus Christ almighty.

Fifty years and eight months is a good run. But it's not like Nash Roberts.

I listen to him every day.

Forecast doesn't sound right unless it's from Peter or Boomer Gallant. We maritimers take the weather seriously.

/it's the only thing to talk about half the year.

I'm the first two. If I make it to the third, I'll let you know on my deathbed.

/Fark in 50 years... mein gott, what a thought
//Congrats, Peter

Yeah, but did he do all that time at the same station?  One of Baltimore's local weathermen has been here for over 40 years at the same station.  I can see him surpassing this record soon.

The article is in Metric years.

Cool. Wish I could have a job with one company for good.
