A First for Millie at KWCH

Millie has been coming to the station with me for 9 years, but has only become popular for about the last 7 years. We've gone to hundreds of places together and been to countless school talks. We've even had a few storm chasing adventures together, but now, when storms approach, we spend our time tracking the event from the studio rather than from the field.

But this week was a first for Millie at KWCH. She had her first "evaluation" from the boss. Pretty good marks for a gal that doesn't draw a paycheck and never complains about anything. She's even worked some long nights with me tracking storms well into the night (and had to wait for dinner until after our shift was over)  I'll admit, when my manager handed me the review for Millie, I didn't read all of it until I made home that evening. It's pretty funny. If you have 2 or 3 minutes to waste (Millie doesn't advise wasting time at work), it's a fun read. You'll have to click on the images for a larger view.

For everyone that has emailed, called, Tweeted, or sent a Facebook message about Millie, I have to say thanks. She's of course very special to me and I'm happy that everyone seems to like her presence on the nightly news. We have more appearances coming up this fall, including the state fair (but don't know what days just yet)

I'm glad to see Millie received a great review, she deserves it! She makes me smile whenever I see her on the news. I like the idea of seeing her more and having her blog/twitter. Ross does a pretty good job too!
