Danny Moves Your Fanny

danny-thurs-afternoon-plot.gifBack in Buffalo fabled morning disk jockey (and all around good guy) Dan Nevereth had a jingle (and ad campaign) which said, “Danny moves your fanny in the morning.¹″ My question is whether that will be true Saturday morning as Tropical Storm or possibly Hurricane Danny bears down on New England?

I keep looking at the data on Danny hoping to find a morsel which will give me a little relief. Nothing. It’s unlikely we’ll get hit directly, but how much impact will there be? The line between some and none is tough to find.

Added to this a planned weekend trip out-of-town. I fly out and back in not much more than 24 hours! If conditions warrant my trip is canceled. That’s not even under discussion. My first obligation is here in Connecticut.

When do I make my decision? I always tell viewers to wait until the very last moment. I’ll follow my own advice. A decision to “eat the ticket” won’t be made until Saturday morning.

No matter what Danny doesn’t look like it’s going to be a powerhouse. That’s good. The romance of a hurricane is that only in the abstract. I’ve never met anyone who felt the same way after a few days without electricity.

¹ – Video of this commercial is not on Youtube! It’s probably the only commercial in America not online. I’d love to see a copy if you have one.

    I say wait for the 2100z NHC forecast today. Models have to start to agree and consolidate very soon.

    You could make a much cooler graphic on your own in 3D:LIVE….kind of like the one I sent all my relatives in Wallingford this morning :)

    if your employer can guarantee the same loyalty to you that you’re willing to provide to them in this situation, then I feel your conflict – otherwise, get on the plane.

    My loyalty is to the people who’ve trusted me for twenty five years through a series of employers.

    Anytime you work for the same people for 25 years in the broadcast business is a miracle.

    Treasure those folks!
