A Dallas weatherman earned himself Cool Stranger of the Week last night via a random act of kindness towards a college student who was stuck on a homework assignment.
When 21-year-old Twitter user @prbryann jokingly pleaded for help to local weatherman Pete Delkus regarding her “Weather Station Analysis” homework assignment at 5:13 CST, the noteworthy Delkus responded with precise answers to all eight of her questions by 6:00.
Answers to your homework.
3. 11.5mph or 10knots
8. rain https://t.co/btQG5CjWaV

It would be wrong not to give proper respect to such a power move by Delkus here. The dude is the lead weather reporter for Dallas-Fort Worth’s ABC affiliate, WFAA-TV, and is the proud owner of over 170,000 Twitter followers. Similarly accomplished TV personalities wouldn’t bother taking more than a split second to actually read the post from such a face in the crowd. Instead, Delkus – whose last name has to be among the all-time most fun to say – went the extra mile to take care of this broad’s busywork assignment that she won’t need any knowledge of beyond this semester anyways.
And they say chivalry is dead.
I’ll probably never have the first damn idea about what a barometric pressure entails – hell, that word may never cross my stream of consciousness until the day I die. But if by some chance I do need to pretend I know the first thing about weather, I’ll be sure to give my man Delkus a shout..
