Grant Johnston is Scary!

Grant Johnston

In case you didn't know, Grant Johnston (left), is a back-up weatherman on Channel 4. By looking at the picture above, you would think he his a pretty nice, harmless guy. And when you check out parts of his bio at KFOR, you'd think he is even less harmless than a lady bug.

When Grant is not tracking storms in the 4Warn Storm Center, he enjoys spending time with family and friends, running, playing the piano, and playing softball.

Playing the piano. Softball. Spending time with family and friends! How on earth can this guy be scary? I'll tell you. Turn your speakers up and visit his website,


Are you back? If you're like me, you'll agree that there's really nothing better than visiting someones website and being welcomed with loud thunder sound effects, lightning, purple darkness and the silhouette of the cross. Especially when you're at work.

And if your also like me, you'll agree that it's pretty scary that Grant Johnston is a fanatical Christian.

You see, just like my thought that it is a bad idea for one of our weathermen to get drunk and wear a Superman shirt underneath his suit, I think it's a bad idea for a weatherman to be a fanatical Jesus freak. I mean can you imagine what might happen if some F5 tornado comes blasting towards the city while Mike Morgan is in rehab? Grant might freak out and say it's the end of the world, and that we're all going to die. And then he'll pull out a keyboard, play some hymns and tell old softball stories to calm everyone down before our apocalyptic hell.

Since that scenario is a possibility, and because Grant writes about himself in third-person, I really think I'm going to stick with Gary England for my severe weather coverage. For one, he'll always let us know that it's okay. And two, why watch a guy who's obsessed with God, when you can watch God himself!
