You know they live for this

In the Atlantic and Gulf States the weather folks live for hurricanes. In Tornado Alley they live for, you guessed it, tornadoes. Evidently in Maryland this guy lives for the big snow storm:



I get it. Economists are often in the background toiling away and perhaps occassionally trying to make a point to the wider public. Most often we are ignored when times are good and blamed when times are bad. Yet, when you get a chance to strut your stuff, so to speak, you try your best to give a good soundbite that is honest to the truth.

On the other hand, standing up as an economist and shouting "Recession!!!!! Oh boy" would only make us look like jack***es. However, for the weather folks, it makes them look like the geeky folks they almost have to be by definition.

I was anxious for a little bit about getting home tomorrow morning but the flight out of Newark left on time and is scheduled to land on time in Hong Kong. Our return flight leaves at 11:30am tomorrow morning local time and I hope we are able to land in Newark and then I get home in the early evening - finally.
