Rule No. 1 of weather reporting: It's not raining unless your anchor looks like he just emerged from a dunk-tank, it's not snowy unless he looks like Frosty the Snowman standing next to a grid-locked highway, and it's sure as hell not windy unless he's outside, being blown around, hair whipping in the wind, trying to scream over the noise.
19 Action News knows this rule, which is why they dispatched a reporter into the hurricane-force wind early this morning. The segment, which involved showing how the wind could close a car door (we're not exactly sure what the proves either), had some unexpected hilarity after the crew realized they had locked themselves out of the van after the wind blew the door shut. Bonus: They had to break a window to get back into the vehicle. Quality television right there. Enjoy.
