'Tis the season for Jim Cantore!

Ah, the hurricane. The mighty, mighty hurricane. The season is upon us and it never fails to end up being the exact opposite, in terms of activity, of what the experts predict/suggest by pulling a random number out of a hat and then calling Jim Cantore of The Jim Cantore Show About Hurricanes Starring Jim Cantore from The Weather Channel to report it as OFFICIAL!

With this official information, Jim Cantore of The Jim Cantore Show About Hurricanes Starring Jim Cantore from The Weather Channel can be seen (about two days before landfall) patrolling the shores of some unsuspecting Florida beach town, stalking the locals with stupid, overdramatic questions and basically behaving like a really bad weather reporter who is way too excited to be reporting on anything. He's obnoxious, half crazy, and loud enough to host WWE's Monday Night Raw. I mean, let's face it: he's no Walter Cronkite. Besides, I can't imagine Walter Cronkite getting so overly theatrical with his interrogation tactics against the local beachwalkers that he trips over his own microphone cord while doing an interview and exclaims "Shit!!" on live television.

Picturing it...picturing it...straining my imagination beyond its borders - can't see Cronkite saying "Shit!" on live TV...nope, can't do it.

So I guess hurricane season is what Jim Cantore of The Jim Cantore Show About Hurricanes Starring Jim Cantore from The Weather Channel lives for. And I think that's cool. Yes, he's annoying, but I fall for it during every single hurricane update.

Here's to you, Jim Cantore of The Jim Cantore Show About Hurricanes Starring Jim Cantore from The Weather Channel. While the majority of Floridians who will be directly affected by any forthcoming hurricanes no longer have access to your live reports (thanks to the DTV switch), we will be thinking of you fondly as we board up our windows and listen to ancient oak trees come crashing down around us. For as we hide in our closets to wait out yet another tornado warning and stay up late into the night convincing our children that the walls are in fact not moving inward against the pressure of 80 mph wind gusts, you Jim Cantore of The Jim Cantore Show About Hurricanes Starring Jim Cantore from The Weather Channel will probably be frolicking on our lovely beaches and enjoying the silence of our cities left abandoned by frightened evacuees.

Welcome to The Sunshine State, Jim Cantore of The Jim Cantore Show About Hurricanes Starring Jim Cantore from The Weather Channel. We hope you have a wonderful time!

I remember watching Jim Cantore on the Weather Channel back when I had cable TV back in the mid 1990's. I recall thinking he was more suited to be a sports reporter than a weather reporter with that buff and tan look of his. I'm glad he's still around out there and has his own show. What ever happened to Jill Brown? They made a good team.

Wow!

I don't necessarily think Jim Cantore has his own show. I think he just hijacks the Weather Channel and makes it his own channel. But he can get away with it because even I get excited when the threat of being blown away is accompanied by his enthusiasm!
