Station Assistant Director: You should say "We might see some snow, but it might shift South, and miss us."

Dave Spritz: I remember once imagining what my life would be like, what I'd be like. I pictured having all these qualities, strong positive qualities that people could pick up on from across the room. But as time passed, few ever became any qualities that I actually had.

And that's who I am, the weather man.
