Daily YouTube: Stupid weather coverage

One of the larger beat-downs known to modern American human-kind is local news coverage of severe weather. If it's not some poor schlub of a beat reporter getting her lips frozen off in the name of award-winning local news, it's the sparest guy/gal in the newsroom being shipped off to cover a mild tropical storm.

Today, we present both.

First, from 1992, Valeri Williams of News8 takes one for the team, as well as Chip and Tracy's amusement...

Followed by Fox4's Edouard coverage; here is some dude named Fodi, who is not terribly familiar with the term "pounding surf"...
