Pat Shingleton: "A Weatherman-Snow Stuck"
From 1979 through 1981, I commuted to Pittsburgh from Baton Rouge every week. I "returned home" to showcase the weather on WPXI, the NBC affiliate. My wife Mabyn, remained at "home," here in Baton Rouge. On one Monday morning I landed in Pittsburgh with snow falling at a rapid rate. By the time I reached my car and began the customary trip from the airport to the Northside of town, snowfall increased at a rapid rate. The normal drive time of 25 minutes was compromised as the parkway into the Fort Pitt tubes was locked-up in traffic. In just a few hours the November 22nd snow event found a seven inch accumulation. My morning wardrobe included shorts and a golf shirt. With my car stuck in snow, I was greeted by the floor crew with laughter.
