Video of the Day: Wind in Palm Springs overwhelms reporter


We've all had unpleasant weather ruin a trip. But imagine having to record a news report during epic winds. Well, that's what CBS reporter Marissa Mike was trying to do recently in Palm Springs. Unfortunately, her insistence on wearing a hat and confusion over what to call a traffic signal made filing her report about the wind quite difficult. The winds themselves had something to do with that, too, of course.

The lesson here, of course, is that news reports about weather serve no purpose other than to embarrass local journalists. If the weather was that dangerous, the Emergency Broadcast System would start beeping, we would all mute our televisions because we'd think it was only a test and we'd all be killed.
