What can you tell me about Jim Cantore?
—Debra C. Tussey, South Lake Tahoe, Calif.
Cantore, a field weatherman who started working for The Weather Channel fresh out of college 15 years ago, frequently is dispatched to cover "extreme weather"—chasing tornadoes, riding out blizzards or waiting on monster hurricanes to make landfall. While he doesn't worry about being in harm's way, he knows his wife and two kids are concerned. "But they know that daddy won't be happy," Cantore says, "unless he's out swashbuckling in a storm."
