When Kris (my plus-1) and I met the night before taping, we talked with some other Twitter friends at a restaurant and her weather nerdiness came up in conversation.

When she mentioned her hunch was D, it didn't quite click into me until after I called "final answer." Hence the exuberance and celebration. I'm just glad she didn't drop her glasses! :lol:
