Ophelia was here 18 years ago so she is a big girl now.
Hilarious, Tim, and so true! Didn't someone say once that he was stuck on HI and TWC no longer visits HI because of that? (I may be wrong on that). Anyway, in between watching old Columbo episodes today, I've been watching Fox Weather Live on our streaming service. They have two people on the island doing nice reporting and have a ton of live shots...not web cams....of the storm situation.
I talked to the camera guys while he was talking with that lady. They told me he only speaks to the lady's and I saw a friend try to say hi and give him a Coast Guard cap and he ignored the guy. He is short, the camera guy says he has to drop the camera a bit to make him seem taller. Obviously jimbo didn't hear him telling his biggest fan this stuff.
Hatteras folks asked him to leave because he made the weather appear worse than it was so he gets more air time. During Izzy in 2003 he and Al Roker and the others all got stuck here as the Holiday Inn roof pealed off and they could not cross the bridges with their satellite trucks because of the winds.
