Does Anyone Watch The Weather Anymore?

I was in the grocery store recently and a lady viewer tapped me on the shoulder. "I am so proud of you!" she said. I'm sure I had a puzzled look on my face as I asked why. "You have lost all of that baby weight! My friends and I watched every night just to be sure you could," she said. As I always do, I thanked her for her compliment and made a comment about baby Will not being much of a baby anymore and continued shopping.

Then I received this email last week.

Enough with wearing all the suits! Us men want tight pants and especially tops. For goodness sake, it's summer. Signed, A Faithful Viewer

It's hard do a job when you know there are viewers out there critiquing the weight loss, weight gain, clothes, hair, makeup....and summer suits. Does anyone tune in to watch the weather anymore for the weather forecast? Maybe I don't need to know the answer to that question..

GOOD GRIEF!! It is a bonus that we get to have our weather forcast delivered by someone that is attractive - but what REALLY counts is the accuracy of schedule planning and sometimes lifesaving weather forcasts and updates. I'd tune it to listen to you give the weather even in a frumpy frock - you'd make it look good I'm sure! :o)

I watch the weather cause I want to know if it's gonna rain or not. And I watch YOU cause you do such a good job...and cause you are my friend.

I don't believe any other forecast but yours. I can depend on your word. And I think you dress appropriately for every forecast.
Hats off to Barbie Bassett for standing and dressing to glorify our LORD and SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST.
