  2. Hey Frankie!

    I live in Calgary and we always pass your weather forecasts around our office when they come out for Calgary. I don't know very much about Sydney and found your blog post interesting. It looks like a lot of changes have happened there over the years. Keep on posting!

  3. Hi Frankie. I love Cape Breton even though I don't live there. It's very sad to read about the places that have closed. I remember camping out on the beaches when I was young. By the way, thank you for your weather reports. You are always on the mark. Just minute ago, I did take your advice and checked my batteries in the flashlight by my bed. You must be the most popular weatherman in Canada. I have watched your reports on Youtube before, but tonight I typed your name and "weather" into the Google search bar, and you are EVERYWHERE on the Internet. You make us East Coasters really proud. Thank you.
