It’s hard to pinpoint one honor that encompasses more than 30 years serving Southwest Florida.

WINK News and Southwest Florida say goodbye to Jim Farrell as chief meteorologist Friday, but we know his name will live on in other ways throughout his retirement.

We hit the street to ask members of the public about what cements Jim’s legacy in their minds and what might be a good thing to name after him.
