Welcome to the FogBank, keeping Picks of the Week fog horn free for JB.
In early 2011, I got tired of hearing the Fog Horn for JB, and decided to help out. I started sending an email to WeatherBrains with a pick for JB to use. Kevin was email officer at the time, and actually thanked me for the picks once or twice.
In early March of 2011, episode 267 “Pizza in the cold” he called me out and challenged me to record & send in five picks. I started the Fog Bank, and kept sending in choices to keep the fog horn silent for JB.
I have that history written up now. You can find that, and these picks, at skydaver.blogspot.com.
I’m only going to read out one pick this week, but I have four more at the blog.
