Time for us Capital Weather Gang bloggers to update our wardrobes: we made GQ’s “The 50 Most Powerful People in Washington” list. Among a group that includes Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Post’s Ezra Klein, and CIA director David Petraeus, we’re #38 of 50.
Here’s what GQ had to say about us:
The Washington Post forecasting outfit is made up of fifteen “degreed meteorologists and/or hard-core weather geeks (typically both),” says weather editor Jason Samenow. Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau checks CWG “obsessively,” and he’s not alone. The Gang pride themselves on putting weather into plain English (”The temperature is right, the damp is wrong. Today is a 10 for mushrooms!”) and embrace the oddball YouTube clips a town full of wonks will love.
Thanks, GQ, for the recognition :)
