Did anyone else see Gary blow his top Saturday night when the correct screens wouldn't pop up behind him? Who is he trying to impress anyway?

Or what. I think you would call that getting short with people. I think Pickens is a hack, but c'mon folks, quit with the exaggeration. As much attention as this has drawn, people around here must have pretty boring lives.

First, Gary DID NOT yell at anybody. If you despise him so much then watch a different channel to get your weather. I saw what happened and he was more than justified to get a little excited. The warning he was trying to show was headed directly towards my house. Therefore, I was thankful he did get a little excited. If you think you can do a better job then why don't you go try it?

I thought Gary was great! We've all had co-workers that made us nuts and wished we could say something like that. My appreciation of him went WAY up after seeing that. It was so cool.

@quit looking
Buy you a weather radio and stop depending on an unqualified person to inform you of the weather. Gary couldn't save an artificial plant.

You made so many mistakes in with your sentences that I can only assume that you're the inbred one.

1) Gary came on the set to "take control" when he was supposed to do so.

2) He was drunk

3) Gary was telling the tech staff to do something that wasn't making sense in the control room. That was why things were not happening immediately. Gary doesn't know the computer programs and he was screwing up.

4) Gary had lost the mobile home advertisers by telling people to "get out of your 'trailer' and jump in a ditch to where it is safe.

5) Nearly let go, he was sent to the morning weather and away from evening news.
