Canadian Weather Enthusiast Really, Really Wants Missouri to Prepare for Winter Weather [VIDEO]

So we have some more bad weather headed our way, and I've noticed this video floating around online. A man who identifies himself as Frankie MacDonald loudly and repetitively informs us of an impending winter storm in the state of Missouri, giving the details on how the storm is being caused, and warns us to be prepared. A lot of people are wondering what's the deal with this guy and why he cares so much about a storm in Missouri. So I did some research and found out a little more about Mr. MacDonald.

UPDATED: Winter Storm Warning Issued for Pettis County This Weekend

UPDATE, March 2, 2014: The winter weather continues to roll through West Central Missouri. The National Weather Service has now changed the storm forecast and claims the Winter Storm Warning will go until midnight tonight. The light snow and sleet will taper off through the day. However, another round of light snow is expected to develop, according to the National Weather Service and Sedalia/Pettis County Emergency Management Director David Clippert.

Like most of us, I expected to see a few inches of snow on the ground,” said David Clippert. “Instead, we had freezing drizzle which made it very slick and then sleet, which means it's still slick. We still have a ways to go . Now they are calling for a possible 2 inches. Very cold tomorrow morning. This is a good day to stay home. If you don't need to be out then please stay home and let the road crews safely do their jobs.”

The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDot) has issued a no travel advisory and most of the state is considered to be in a covered state with either snow, ice or sleet this morning (Mar. 2).

Governor Jay Nixon announced he has activated the State Emergency Operations Center (SEOC) and delayed his scheduled departure to Canada for a trade mission. The Governor and state emergency officials continue to track the weather system and are in close contact with the National Weather Service and local emergency management agencies to monitor conditions.

“State emergency management officials are working to ensure we are fully prepared for what is forecast to be a severe winter storm,” Governor Nixon said. “Snow and freezing rain, combined with high winds, will bring hazardous conditions and potential power outages to parts of the state. As we brace for another round of severe winter weather, I urge Missourians to use caution, check on friends and neighbors, and avoid unnecessary travel so that MoDOT and local road crews can do their important work to keep Missourians safe.”

The National Weather Service is expecting dangerous wind chills to continue through Tuesday.
