    back in the day who got loopy when he was on the night shift and swooped around? He dressed like a skinny version of Herb Tarlek from WKRP. He made insomnia bearable.

      almost always rubbed me the wrong way. As when I was in Miles City, preparing to start an all-day drive to Missoula, in November. Turned on TWC and there's Dave, talking about possible snow in Montana and how the skiers were just smacking their lips over the possibility.

          bugged me, just about every time I saw him. Keith Westerlage, Carl Parker, and Mike Seidel were much more what I expected of a weatherman, as was poor old Jeanetta. There's another woman I liked from the olden days, but she's not listed among the current on-air team and I can't remember her name.
