Remembering Barry ZeVan the “Peek-a-Boo” weatherman

Those locals who were around in the 1970s and 80s are likely familiar with KSTP and KARE TV’s “Peek-a-Boo” weatherman, who nightly reported the temperature in Bird Island, Minnesota, leading to the popular query, “Where the hell is Bird Island anyway?” Barry ZeVan, who for many years wrote a column, “ZeVan on Skiing” fro the Midwest Sportster passed away January 1, 2020.
