Best advice ever?   7 comments

Stuck in my mind…

“stay inside and keep your walkways clear.”

What, do we have shoveling robots?

I heard this last week during a storm Juno news talk fest, which brings up a big pet peeve…news people who don’t listen to what they are saying, just talk talk talk.

  1. We had a big storm out here a few years back, a wind shear that knocked out power for the entire city. It was also ridiculously hot and muggy. The news person said “We are all without power, it will be tough to stay cool when no AC will be functional, so put a fan in your windows.” I’ve been laughing over this for years.

    • OMG, that is hysterical! Probably in a situation like that you should use yoru microwave to heat food so the kitchen stays cool, lol.

      I have to say, I much prefer winter power outages to summer ones. We are fortunate to have non electrical heat sources, and can melt snow for water. We can save food by putting it outside. But in the summer, we just can’t do anything to help ourselves. Except put a fan in a window. šŸ™‚

      • I really think that local news people have two things happening in these cases. The first being excitement over reporting on something major that is happening, and the second being forced to say things that aren’t exactly scripted. It does make for comical moments that I just love.

        I agree, a storm knocking out power in the winter, as long as it isn’t -20F, is much preferable to a hot muggy summer power outage. Then again, I’ve got gas heat and gas stove, so I am pretty much set. And I know not everyone is in that particular situation.

        • I agree – and think that someone should do a little more scripting. Although some of those are funny, too. One morning the newsperson was reading a story about the native americans royal ties. It was a few minutes into the story that I figured out she was really talking about royalties! Must have been a teleprompter misread. Anyway, it provides us with entertainment, right?

  2. šŸ™‚ hysterical. I am putting a fan in my window right now, so I can stay cool here in Johannesburg next time the power goes out.
    Thanks for the post, made my day!

  3. I agree it sounds a little silly! And someone should totally invent a shoveling robot. I’d get one, just so I don’t have to dig out my car. Again.
