I seem to remember one station had their weather man dressed up in a gas
station pump jockey costume (I think it was Atlantic Richfield oil company).
Oh...for the days when there WERE gas station attendants!

It caught my eye because of Barney. I was always under the impression that
for the most part early Boston TV news and weather avoided most of the
gimmicks that seemed prevalent in other markets (like puppets, weather girls
and the "funny" weatherman).
