Al Roker in Scotia
Last night NBC had a special report called “Blizzard! NBC Weather PLUS Special”. The focus of the hour long special was how to protect yourself from the onslaught of winter weather. As a graduate of the State University at Oswego, Al should know a lot about winter in upstate NY. His first weathercasting job was as weekend weatherman at WTVH-TV in Syracuse in 1974.
Part of the weather special included winter driving tips. The site used in this segment was our own Schenectady County Airport. The New York State Police use an unused runway at the airport for their driving school. The troopers were glad to help Al spread the word on the dangers of winter driving.
