Reporters blown off-camera during live blizzard update


We’re in Grand Etang, Nova Scotia. This is home of Les Suetes winds– south-easterly – they’re more easterly right now, gusting about 170 kilometres per hour. You can’t quite look the wind in the face because your face gets sand-blasted. Yeah, you know, it’s very much … the only storm I can compare this to is hurricanes. Definitely out in the middle of a wind blast of a hurricane, this is what you’d feel but this has the added bonus of having the snow in the air so as soon as your face is exposed to it, it’s like, just feeling like you’re standing in a sandblaster and it’s actually very dangerous because you have the added bonus of frostbite. So this is a big problem so why we are very well done up right now … whoa! We’re fine. One thing I notice too, Mark is that … it’s actually … I don’t know if it’s sunny … not quite. But the sky is getting brighter, and we thought that the precipitation is easing up, but the winds are getting stronger so we’ve got a couple more hours of this before things settle down. Back to you.

    I don't know whether to laugh or be concerned… You guys should come visit us in Canada. You know, igloos and maple syrup.

    I don't like that they have to risk reporters like that just so people can get the sense of what is going on. I think that just announcing the winter storm warning is dangerous, should be enough. Or videotaping it from inside a building…

    No, this is Grand Etang, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. I lived there and remember when they aired it here. We all died laughing. Its a very windy area there. Thats why they call it Mother Winds. The Cabot Trail. And ignore the trolls. They are home jobless and bored. Lol
