Tom Skilling, chief meteorologist for WGN-TV , took a trip to Carbondale, Ill. to see the solar eclipse in its course of totality, (his very first solar eclipse, BTW) and his response was really valuable.
“I’ll get my act together men,” a choked up Skilling informed audiences through tears.
He even hugged and high-fived fellow eclipse watchers, et led a chorus of “Here Comes the Sun.”
If that does not melt your ice cold heart, truthfully absolutely nothing will.
Twitter liked the meteorologist’s pure response a lot, he was even trending Monday.
god bless Tom Skilling

You and I will never ever like anything as much as Tom Skilling enjoys the weather condition.

I seem like this is the day Tom Skilling has actually been training for his entire life.

Skilling informed fellow Carbondale eclipse watchers he would be back for the next one in 2024. Here’s hoping Skilling’s response will be similarly as invaluable.
