Jim Cantore, Meteorologist at The Weather Channel, shows us what a perfect job match looks like in this video of him out in one of the worst winters on record. We should all be so so fortunate to love being in an office, construction site, hospital, restaurant, oil rig, or wherever the heck it is we earn a living - as he does in a snowstorm.
