There are not enough weathermen heroes

There are not enough weathermen heroes. Seriously. There is no sexier word than “Doppler.”

How do I know? Meezergrrrl provided the proof.  Have a look.

ETA: Anony Miss is right – this is not the most safe-for-work image in the land. Sorry about that! Be ye warned: NSFW!

    “Hey, is that a fast-moving high-pressure system in your pants, or are you just a paranormal weatherman hero whose Doppler darkens Indiana, Ohio and Northwest Pennsylvania?”

    And it gives all new meaning to newscasters who say “your weather is coming up next”.

    I’ve always said that those weathermen stood around at conventions and bragged about their Dopplers and the size of their Dopplers.  And I enjoy traveling to hear what the local channels call their Dopplers.  Here in Central Pennsylvania, it’s Super Doppler 8, 8 is on your side.  Yeah.  I hear ya. 

    And they’re always telling us how many inches we’re going to get.

    known19:  I have known for 19 years that weathermen may not always be right, but they keep trying and trying, God love ‘em.

    I know it says “Doppler 10”, but I really think he might be more of a “Doppler 15”. Possibly larger.

    And a little bit of humor: There is a length of measure called a Rod and I happen to find that hilarious. It is about 5 and a half yards. Looks to be on target for this guy.

    rod (rd) [1]
    a traditional unit of distance equal to 5.5 yards (16 feet 6 inches or exactly 5.0292 meters). The rod and the furlong were the basic distance units used by the Anglo-Saxon residents of England before the Norman conquest of 1066. The Saxons generally called this unit the gyrd, a word which comes down to us as the name of a different unit, the yard. “Rod” is another Saxon word which meant just what it means today: a straight stick. The Normans preferred to call the gyrd a pole or a perch (a word of French origin, meaning a pole; see perche). The length of the rod was well established at least as early as the eighth century. It may have originated as the length of an ox-goad, a pole used to control a team of 8 oxen (4 yokes). Scholars are not sure how the rod was related to shorter units. It may have been considered equal to 20 “natural” feet (actual foot lengths; see foot), or it may have been measured “by hand” as 30 shaftments. In any case, when the modern foot became established in the twelfth century, the royal government did not want to change the length of the rod, since that length was the basis of land measurement, land records, and taxes. Therefore the rod was redefined to equal 16.5 feet, because with reasonable precision that happened to be its length in terms of the new foot. This length was called the “king’s perch” at least as early as the time of King Richard the Lionheart (1198). Although rods and perches of other lengths were used locally in Britain, the king’s perch eventually prevailed. The relationship between the rod and the other English distance units was confirmed again by the Parliamentary statute of 1592, which defined the statute mile to be either 320 rods or 1760 yards, thus forcing the rod to equal exactly 5.5 yards or 16.5 feet.

    I have never read such an erotic mathematic explanation before.  Must go watch the weather now.

    lay39: Really?  Does this need explaining?

    Now that’s one high pressure system I’d never thought I’d see during the forecast.

    Shoot! I read a book ages ago with a hero who WAS a meteorologist. Set in Texas, I think. He did a series on hurricane preparedness and got nicknamed the “Hurricane Hunk.”

    What I want to know is how on earth did she capture that image!?

    The reason there are no hero weathermen is because there is no such thing.

    They are wrong more than they are right, at least here (locally) when it comes to predicting the weather.  They could use Doppler 99 and still be wrong.  So, not a hero does that make.  Ever.  Period.

    You even warned me. And yet I opened the link at work.

    faith69: Well, that’s just wrong too. What is all this saying about my Monday?
