The Perfect Todd

This weekend was fairly productive, in that we were able to move our home office down into it's new location in the dining room. We definitely couldn't have done it without the help of Dave, Rita, Paul, and Beth, who came over to help with the heavy lifting. Afterwards (it only took about half an hour), we celebrated with some tasty paella, beer, and maybe a little too much wine. Well, except for the Mom-to-Be , who abstained on everything but the paella.

Sunday was our first really snowy day of the season. We stayed indoors and watched the ensuing winter wonderland from a safe distance. I'm sure that there will be plenty of snow to trudge through this winter, probably starting tomorrow with a potential Nor'easter.

Speaking of weather, I was really bummed out to hear that Boston's Channel 7 weather guru Todd Gross has apparently been fired after over 20 years on the job. I always liked Todd Gross. Not just a talking head, this guy has a serious passion for meteorology and seemed to enjoy shairing that with the public. He even had a special section on the WHDH website for weather geeks, supplying some of the arcane data that meorologists use to make their predictions. I don't pretend that I understood it all, but it was always fascinating to read. An actor portraying Todd appeared in the film "A Perfect Storm" , about the giant storm of 1991 that sank the Gloucester fishing boat Andrea Gail. Todd was the weather consultant on the film and was, I believe, the guy who originally labelled it a "perfect storm". There has been no explanation for Todd's apparent dismissal, and all mention of him has been completely removed from the WHDH website. I'll miss you Todd... hopefully you've just gone on to better things.
