A few decades and a linguistic device included in French surnames it seems, is all the separate Joe LaPlante and Joe Plante.
The former Watertown resident Joe Plante came into the studio last Monday to meet our meteorologist Joe LaPlante.
Joe Plante was a meteorologist for the National Weather Service and grew up in Watertown. He now lives in Charlotte, North Carolina, but still has family in the North Country.
The two shared a conversation and a picture.
