There's an out-take from a weather report (I've seen the video but can't find it) where the female news reporter says to the weatherman "So Bob, where's that 8 inches you promised me last night?".

The whole production crew had to leave the studio as they were unable to contain their mirth.

To be honest I'm tired and not really in the mood tonight for 4 inches of anything!

As for the snow, I need to go and see my parents tomorrow.. 60 miles away. Argh, why does it always snow when I need to be somewhere?

Romulus, that was absolutely fabulous: ...and Belinda, i just can't understand how something so small can be, so impressive? Well Mark, you would know all about that?! Thank you very much. Weather's next... All so perfectly-timed so as to avoid any possible riposte.

I get the impression that there's much more "fun" to be had with Belinda and Mark. It's not all just about Oz TV presenters phoning UK hospitals at cheap rates in the middle of the night... :ok: :uhoh:
