Claire is famous

June 7, 2008
  Canadians love to talk about the weather.  So when we have an award winning meteorologist working on CBC, then she is not just a weather person, she is famous.  Claire Martin started working with CBC Vancouver this year after a stint at the national weather office.
    She has won Best Weather Presenter in the World for three years in a row.  I heard that once she won it by making a spoof on the old "it is so hot out you can fry an egg on the sidewalk" by  changing it to "it is so cold out you can freeze an egg on the sidewalk" and demonstrating it.
  We just learned that she first made her fame in childhood as an extra on a Pink Floyd video.  She was the small British child with her sleeves pushed up (it was the style) in a lineup for a factory in the music video, Another Brick in the Wall.  If you are like me and need a little hint on the tune, hum to this…"we don’t need no education."  Apparently she is a bit self conscious about it.
