News & Notes: Wind, Ohio Snow & Bob Ryan

By Jason Samenow
  • It may come as a surprise to some Capital Weather Gang readers, but NBC4 chief meteorologist Bob Ryan would love to get some of that Ohio snow here. In a recent interview hosted by local journalist Carol Joynt, Ryan talks about why he enjoys snow so much and covers a range of topics including his biggest forecast bust, storm chasing, his competition and his views on climate change. The interview, part of the "Q&A Cafe" series at Nathans of Georgetown, is available in five segments on YouTube: Segment 1, Segment 2, Segment 3, Segment 4, and Segment 5

Thanks for the Bob Ryan Q/A link Jason, while I think highly of the other local Mets, Bob has always been my favorite and I could always see the snow lover in him, never quite sure why others couldn't see it and he gets labeled a snow hater.....though I wonder if it's cause he always seemed to be one of the few, MANY years ago, mets who would contradict NWS winter warnings and call for less......anyway, thanks again!

Just got my power back 1.5 hours ago. The BGE trucks were in my neighborhood from 8am to 7pm today. Must've been a downed pole!

It must have been a downed pole? If my power had been out for twenty-four hours I think I would have been out walking or driving in the neighborhood to find out where the problem was. Better than sitting in cold house.

Ohio had their time, next storm is our time before we ride up Troy's Bucket.

I did check the neighborhood. However, all of the power poles were built behind the houses, so you can't see much. The BGE trucks had a tough time getting back there, from what I could see (they kept alternating streets).

On 3/19-20 the mid Atlantic will have its BEST chance of getting snow. I already see everything comming together....:)

Cap Team, you guys see the 1040 high and trough shifting negative.

To the no name commenter who mentions snow:
Don't tell me that. That's the week I start spring break.

Please note my comments on the Ohio snow in an earlier post. If this continues my concern is how it will impact the baseball season for the Indians (remember last year?) and perhaps even for the Reds.

I still remember that picture from Cleveland last April: Fausto Carmona staring at snow-covered Jacobs Field. It could happen again in 2008. Snow like that NEVER occurs in Carmona's native Dominican Republic.
