Hall of Fame inductees: Love of weather came early

February 3, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The two newest inductees into the National Meteorologist Hall of Fame both found their love of weather as youngsters, and believe that today, young people have even better and open chances to pursue careers in the field of meteorology.

Wednesday, the Punxsutawney Weather Discovery Center welcomed Elliot Abrams, AccuWeather’s chief forecaster and senior vice-president, and Dr. Greg Forbes, The Weather Channel's severe weather expert, into its Hall of Fame, the fifth class to earn the distinction.

Henceforth, he shall be known as ‘The Rainmaker’

February 3, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — A.J. Dereume’s new Inner Circle name has a familiar ring to it.

Or is that a familiar rain?

Dereume’s nickname — The Rainmaker — as the newest member of the Inner Circle was the one once held by his father, Jack Dereume Jr., who was also an Inner Circle member.

During Tuesday’s Groundhog Banquet, President Bill Deeley gave the younger Dereume his nickname, explaining his rationale.

“If you knew Jack Dereume, you knew everywhere he went, it rained,” he said.

Any truth in that?
