My colleague meteorologist Joe Furey just turned fifty. As I remember fifty is a big deal. His depression will set in later, but right now it’s time to celebrate. To make that happen Joe’s wife planned and threw a surprise party. It wasn’t that easy!
Somehow Joe came across an invitation envelope with his wife’s handwriting. He got suspicious. That led to another, smaller party to throw Joe off the scent.
When he walked into the New England Air Museum (fabulous… what a gem) he thought he was going to give a speech to the Silver City Flying Club. Surprise! Click the photo on the left to see Joe’s reaction as he realized what was going on.
The party was great. Joe’s family was there along with a who’s who of Connecticut broadcasting and a sizable slice of the state’s meteorologists (Do you think Jeffrey Butler’s name came up?).
