French Toast Alert is at 4 Slices

Gary Waldeck ran across the Weather Channel's Steve Petyerak and Jim Cantore along the waterfront this morning, bracing, as one does when one works for the Weather Channel, for this weekend's snow/sleet action.

Yes, Mr. Thundersnow is in town. That's rarely a good thing. We've raised the French Toast Alert level to 4 Slices/High.

Six WHDH reporters in little boxes

Darryl Houston spotted WHDH exercising its snow-box system tonight, with a cute little six-boxer. The Boston TV record stands at 17 reporters, weatherpeople and a random kid named Bobby on screen at once; is this the season we truly become world class and break the 20 barrier?

The National Weather Service has issued a winter-storm watch that goes into effect Wednesday morning and we've got at least one local forecaster begging people not to blame to blame her for what could be up to ten inches of heavy, wet, power-line-snapping snow coming Wednesday into Thursday in what would be our fourth nor'easter of the month. So, really, what choice did the French Toast Alert panic analysts have but to up the alert - get some milk, egg and bread tomorrow.
