Interview With Minnesota’s Favorite YouTube Forecaster – Frankie McDonald [WATCH]
You've seen Frankie a few times warning us of massive storms coming our way, and many get a good laugh from it. The inspirational Frankie talks about his love for his videos.
It can be a little surprising to see Frankie's forecast warnings, his delivery is a little different than we're used to seeing. That might be why he gets tens of thousands of views on YouTube.
There's a lot about Frankie that is different, and for a reason...he has autism. It's a mental condition, present from early childhood, characterized by difficulty in communicating and forming relationships with other people and in using language and abstract concepts. (source: Google)
Frankie studies weather happening all over the world, then posts YouTube videos about different areas that are supposed to get dangerous weather. He's also got a great memory when it comes to roads and directions. He can tell you most any road in Canada, especially near his home city of Nova Scotia.
It's obvious from his videos that he has a form of autism, and it adds to his charm and innocence, appreciating the simple pleasures in life. Be sure and check out his YouTube channel and you'll understand why he's such an inspiration to all of us. We look forward to the next video Frankie puts out, and hopefully it's not for more major Minnesota winter storms.
