This picture, obviously, was taken by someone else. In this case, it was photographer Dave Jones.
Meteorologist Joe Snedeker and I were sharing a lighter moment in the WNEP weather office just before a nor'easter was due to hit back in early March.
Joe and I did not share an instant chemistry. It developed over time. My desk is fairly close to the weather office, so when I need a break or a laugh, relief is just steps away. As I write this, I think of how lucky I have been over the years. The broadcasting business attracts some great people (and some horrible ones, too). Many of them are close by to brighten my day.
