Blog Update on the Way By 1:15 a.m. Remember it will be like a Marathon

Hello...I am still awake and checking out the latest runs for you...I will do a comparison of how far we have come since Friday...I think you will enjoy it...and how far we will go on snow tomorrow! :)

I wanted to thank all of you bloggers and most of all the great people that write in. I am really touched by a lot of your comments. You are first class and while it is officially called "Mike's weather blog" I wanted to make sure you knew that is successful because of you and I feed off of your energy as well. I will only take a little credit and give you most of the credit. I sit here reading in amazement at how lucky I am to have viewers like you and while I should be asleep and resting for the storm, I just get these bursts of energy thanks to you and sleep is the farthest thing from my mind. The music is cranking along with the maps! Current song on the radio: Kid Rock.... Unmistakeably yes!! I think that fits in this type of pattern with nature rocking a good portion of the country.

Just like when I run marathons I know to get in with a solid group that keeps a steady pace. That is you. You can hang with me or even run with me anytime. That would be quite a sight...all of the weather fanatics running down the Sagamore Parkway! I love what I do and really it is because of you. Yes, the weather part of course I have been crazy about since I was 4 years old when our sunny forecasts in Maryland turned into 6 inches of snow. But it is you that truly makes this job what it is and when I talk into the camera I just know that WLFI has the best viewers and weather fans on earth! I will try to force myself to get some rest before 2 a.m. so we can go full steam ahead tomorrow. BUT FOR NOW I AM PREPARING ANOTHER BLOG UPDATE! :)

Remember it will be like a marathon and we all have to pace ourselves....tonight I see very little snow and the roads should be fine in the morning....after 4 p.m. tomorrow things will quickly go downhill.

Right back at you Mike, we are lucky to have you!! I for one really appreciate your love of snow, not many people get as excited as all of us on here when we hear snow on the way. I think that's why a few people on here yesterday were a little upset, they wanted the snow so bad and they thought they were going to be disappointed. Hopefully you have some good news for us soon on the blog, can't wait!!

Hey all before I got a bit of the forecast done and again the models have moved north and are looking good for later on today with our 3" to 6" range and if we keep on this track we can add later for now I thing Mikes 3" to 5" and my 3" to 6" are holding fine!

I think WLFI should make a T-Shirt saying "Weather with the Prang Gang 2009"

Dear Mike, You are like the icing on the cake with your love for weather and keeping us all pumped up...I love the idea of WLFI making a t-shit with: Weather with the Prang Gang on it or even Prang Weather Gang...
