A brief article in the St. Louis Post Dispatch got me thinking about the personification of weather. The article concerned the St. Louis Weather Bird, the oldest continually running daily cartoon. Specifically, it dealt with the claims of a pretender to the throne, the New Orleans Weather Frog, which was only a near-continuous fixture (whereas the weather bird has been around for 110 years, continuously). You probably didn’t know that the Los Angeles papers also had a weather cartoon, Mr. Smoggy (you can see him on this page).
My question to you: do you have a favorite personification of weather (or weathercaster)?
