This simple way of weather forecasting seems to make a lot of sense and more accurate than what we used to get from weather forecasters on television.
Anyway, I tried to search for the video of the famous bloop (I remember having seen it before) but it could have been a fake, according to this report:
The TV News Anchor Who Brought Down the House - Unproven!
Summary of the eRumor
The story is that a female news anchor in Michigan asked a weather reporter on the air why it didn't snow as he had forecasted by asking him, "Where's that 8-inches you promised me last night."
When it comes to bloopers and out-takes from broadcasting, church pulpits, or any other public venue, one of the factors that sometimes makes them funny is the unintended sexual content.
The founder of TruthOrFiction.com, Rich Buhler, is a veteran of 40 years in broadcasting.
He says this story has made the rounds for years and that he has heard it attributed to TV performers in Los Angeles, Seattle, and elsewhere.
It could have happened, but we've never really gotten a first-hand report of it or documentation from a tape of a broadcast.
A real example of the eRumor as it has appeared on the Internet:
This had most of the state of Michigan laughing for 2 days and a very embarrassed female news anchor who will, in the future, likely think before she speaks.
A female news anchor who, the day after it was supposed to have snowed and didn't, turned to the weatherman and asked, "So Bob, where's that 8 inches you promised me last night?"
Not only did HE have to leave the set, but half the crew did too they were laughing so hard.
