I don’t have to check with the TV weather man or The Weather Channel to find out what the conditions will be like when I lead the PCH Prize Patrol to the door of a lucky sweepstakes winner. No sir: it’s always fair weather when our Prize Patrol van pulls up and we ring the doorbell and announce to a shocked resident “You are a winner in the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes!”
I was reminded of this recently when our good friend Dave Price, the weather anchor of CBS’s Early Show, “tied the knot.” On the day you get married OR when the Prize Patrol comes to call the sun is always shining and there’s not a cloud in the sky – even if the actual weather report showed that there were sprinkles, a downpour or even a snowstorm in the area.
I’ve had the pleasure of appearing on TV twice with Dave Price. Once we ran around New York’s Times Square asking sightseers if they’d welcome a prize award delivery visit from the Prize Patrol. (They would!) Another time we surprised a family in North Carolina with a life-changing knock on the door. On both occasions the temperature was near freezing; but for everyone in the immediate vicinity it felt like we were in the midst of a tropical heat wave – with no discomfort whatsoever!
Even though I’m not a meteorologist or a weather man like Dave Price, I’ll go out on a limb and predict the “weather” for your town should you be the winner of our next Big Check: It will be sunny, bright and just plain perfect!
Since we’re currently planning to make a huge prize award delivery tomorrow, August 31st, we’re looking forward to a “sunny” day for our newest millionaire! Will it be you?
