It's not necessarily irony and it's definitely not karma. (And that's not a sarcastic sentence, for the record.)

Maine Meteorologist Keith Carson

NEWS CENTER Maine's Keith Carson is one of the more active Maine meteorologists on social media, and because he's not a boring human being in general, often likes to have fun with his followers or the randoms that comment ridiculous things to him.

Some will say he trolls them and at times, he may even say it himself. But at the end of the day at the core of it all, Keith is just a dude trying to do his job to the best of his ability based on the tools at his disposal.

Which makes the angry emails he gets from trolls like the one he mentioned getting a few days ago a headscratcher. Because at the end of the day, the dude is just trying to help us prep for a sunny day, a snowy disaster, or a total wash of torrential downpours.

Maine Weather Reports

Lately, the weather in Maine has been tough to predict. And honestly, it's no one's fault -- sometimes the pattern just keeps changing by the minute.

Case in point, to kick off last week, the forecast said we were going to get hammered with snow on Friday. A day or two later, the snowstorm got moved to (and hit) on Saturday.

Even to kick off this week, there were rumors that we could see up to another foot of snow in areas of Maine this Sunday. Now we know that's not happening, as NEWS CENTER Maine is reporting that we could see some kind of storm Monday night into Tuesday that could dump some snow or a mix on us.

But at the end of the day, whether it's Keith or another meteorologist from NEWS CENTER Maine or even another Maine news outlet entirely, they just try to get it as right as they can with as much notice as possible.

So, let this be a lesson. These fellas and ladies can only predict nature -- which, reminder, is uncontrollable and unpredictable at times -- to a certain level. So, that said, here's a second lesson/reminder for you.

Stop being d-bags to meteorologists. And while I'm at it -- people in general.

Thanks for coming to my TED talk.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
