Al Roker, NYC mayor smooth over their snow spat

Al Roker Chats with Bill De Blasio on 'Today'

NEW YORK (AP) - TV weatherman Al Roker and New York City's mayor have made up after a spat over snow and school closings.

Mayor Bill de Blasio (dih BLAH'-zee-oh) and the meteorologist met cordially on camera on NBC'S "Today" show Monday. Earlier this month, Roker chastised de Blasio on Twitter for keeping schools open during a storm that left nearly 10 inches of snow.

Roker said Monday the two chatted about the issue and both "want the best for the school kids and our city." De Blasio agreed and says letting people know about weather hazards is "something we do together."

He gave Roker a city Sanitation Department ball cap and invited him to join in next time the city needs plowing.

The National Weather Service is forecasting snow in the city Wednesday and Saturday.

Al Roker is just a big buffoon and should move on from the morning show, he has had his day. Move over and give some younger person a chance

I love Al Roker as many millions do. He is allowed to twitter his opinion as he wishes. That's our freedom.

I agree with Al— DeBlasio is a one term mayor.

Al, hit the nail on the head with his comments about not closing the schools. NYC folks are lame for voting DeBlasio into office. Not a fan of the Today Show, but was happy to see that Al spoke up!

Who's Al Roker?? He's suppose to be a weatherman right? Why does anyone pay any attention to what he has to say about a city's management process? Just report what other have put together for him to read and leave politics along.

Come on people can we give him a chance? He just got in office and wow he is up and running.Oh Bloomy did not like to get his hands dirty. But as you can see my new Mayor has no problem with it. You got to love him. School is a parent's responsibility if you want your kid to go to school in a snow storm, well send them. If you parent deem it to dangerous then don't. What is the dilemma? We all still have choices.
