When Weather Computers Go Down

When you work in meteorology, you're bound to know at least a few people who do the weather on TV - broadcast meteorologists.  As with any job, sometimes things go wrong.  But when they do, some people handle it better than others.  Here's a YouTube video I've run across that shows a pretty excellent example of how to present a weather forecast when the weather computers go down and all those fancy graphics aren't at the broadcast meteorologist's disposal.  This is from Channel 8 in Tulsa, Oklahoma, earlier this week.

And then...there's Southern California.  Temperatures dropped into the 50s in the Los Angeles area, and people weren't very happy about it.  See the video below from the Jimmy Kimmel Show.
