      Kim, thus remind me fondly of the complete panic I witnessed my first month after moving from the Apple to Virginia after my parents divorced, when a freak snowstorm hit the state. Less than an inch of snow, and there were runs on grocery stores, people fighting over loaves of brad, schools closed for two weeks. No one believed me when I said that my first snowstorm had been nineteen inches of fury and -8 F, and that I'd walked to and from school, running snowball fights along the way.

      Jimmy Kimmel Reminds Viewers Just How Sensitive Los Angeles Reporters Are To ‘Cold’ Weather (Video)

      Dailies | By Greg Gilman on December 6, 2013 @ 7:43 am

      A high of 50 degrees is just too low for local NBC, Fox and CBS affiliates

      Jimmy Kimmel spent a good portion of his childhood in New York, so he knows cold. On Thursday, however, the late-night comedian reminded his audiences that many local Los Angeles news reporters do not.

      In the wake of the cold front moving through Southern California this week, labeled “arctic” by some outlets, Kimmel compiled a cut of the reporters racing to cover the weather.

      “Whenever the weather in L.A. drops below 70 degrees, our local news stations go nuts,” Kimmel joked (above) on his ABC show. “This is from the last two days, and other than some of the body parts on some of the reporters, there’s nothing fake about this. This is all real.”

      The reporters’ observations range from “it might have snowed  if the temperatures would have dropped just a little bit more” to “we do have some sort of a breeze.”

      The storm of the century is expected to continue ravaging SoCal this weekend.
