Yup, the stud of the weather world, Jim Cantore from the Weather Channel, is in New England for our latest storm, named Kenan.

And we know what that means, this Nor'easter is absolutely no joke.

Wait, can I still call this blizzard a Nor'easter? Jim would know.

Jim could have gone to New York or Philly, even the Jersey shore, as they're all about to get pummeled, but nope, he chose New England.

Love you, Jim!

That's right, Jim and his producer, Steve Petyerak are in Boston, so you can pretty much forgo any speculation on the power of Kenan.

Kenan is going to be exactly what we're expecting, and then some because Jim and Producer Steve are like the weather whisperers.

Armed with statistics, tidbits and passion, Jim and Producer Steve keep us consistently updated to the point of being transfixed to the TV.  I mean he's mesmerizing and exciting to watch and listen to, almost hypnotizing.

A hearty New Englander himself, and self-proclaimed weather geek born and raised in Connecticut and Vermont, Jim has been a meteorologist for the Weather Channel since he graduated from college in 1986, according to the Weather Channel website.

Even his Twitter bio is so cool kids table. I'm not the only one obsessed am I?  I mean in a non-stalkery way?

The Weather Channel may be based in Atlanta, but with Jim's reputation of traveling where the weather takes him, becoming a celebrity in his own right, he says his location is up to Mother Nature, and this time, it's New England, and the Boston area.

To follow the play by play of Jim online, here you go.
