Video: L.A. Reporters Freak Out About Our 'Cold Snap'
Baby, it's cold outside... and L.A. is freaking out. On a segment on the Jimmy Kimmel Live show, we got to see L.A. reporting at its finest—on the "cold snap" weather we've been enduring.
"It was 30 below in Colorado today," Jimmy Kimmel said in the video. "Whereas, we had a high of 60 degrees, and everyone is talking about how cold we are."
The hilarious round-up featured local reporters describing our colder-than-normal temperatures as a "bitter blast of cold weather." They attempted to describe our weather as windy, but the footage almost always would cut to a leaf fluttering softly in the breeze. Angelenos even had to use the Starbucks drive-thru window to avoid the cold. Yes, the horror of it all!
One reporter even looked disappointed when he said, "It would've snowed if the temperatures dropped just a little bit more."
We can all dream.
