Meteorologist Drew Anderson is so proud that his aunt–a resident of Yorkana, York County–will have the chance to vote for him.

Aunt Mary always sends Meteorologist Drew Anderson a text every time she sees him on air at FOX43.

FOX43 is right down the road from her house, just outside of downtown York.  Between FOX43 and WGAL News 8, Meteorologist Drew Anderson has worked in York County and Lancaster County for nearly a decade.

WGAL’s studios are just outside of downtown Lancaster.  Yet, every time it snowed, it seemed as if they sent Meteorologist Drew Anderson to York County.  He’d report on the conditions there for News 8 Today.  He was in York County so much that he’d joke he was the “snow” Ed Weinstock.

There really is something special about York County.

One Easter when Meteorologist Drew Anderson was working at WGAL, a family must have heard him mention he was working a double.  So, they sent him an email to say no one should be alone on Easter, and they invited him over for dinner.  Talk about generosity!  He says it was an amazing meal and an Easter he’ll never forget.

He has a lot of stories like that from York County.

Ask him about the time a now retired teacher at Southern Elementary School offered to make him and another teacher there dinner.  She offered this for a reason: she wanted to set Drew up on a blind date with that teacher.  The “dinner” never happened, but things worked out well for that other teacher.  She is doing missionary work in Africa, and she just got engaged on Groundhog Day!
