In an area full of politicians, one of Washington's best known lawmakers takes a moment to honor the career of ABC7's Bob Ryan, who is leaving the station this week.
Maryland's own Senator Barbara Mikulski sends her well wishes in a manner unique to her.
"We are so proud of the 30 years you've given to weather forecasting here in Maryland," she told Ryan. "We have loved you. We have counted on you to give us the right forecast at the right time."
And then Mikulski sings "You are my Sunshine."
