It is a good telling of the story of the "Rouse Simmons" and the family. It was a buisness, but with a big heart.

Since I couldn't find the Weather Channel story, I did a search on yahoo and found this:

Lots of interesting background, too. Apparently there is a new book out about the Rouse-Simmons.
