Hard at Work
The summit is bustling with people and cameras all heading in different directions. I’m not sure if I’m on a mountain top or a NYC TV set. I suppose that somehow we have managed to fuse these two seemingly juxtaposed locations into one, if only for a few short days. Our daily tasks from de-icing to obtaining the precipitation can to shoveling snow drifts have suddenly turned into video productions with cameras and lights.
I am nothing less than impressed with the planning, the exploring of stock footage, the late nights, and around-the-clock hours of all the Good Morning America crew. It is unbelievable to me how the crew is willing to brave the 100 mph winds and the subsequent bite of the -23°F wind chill temperatures. Certainly their interest in our work is encouraging for their curiosity does not stop with the perfect winter wonderland video clips but extends to a full circle fascination with our daily jobs. We look forward anxiously to tomorrow morning’s broadcast.
