ABC’s Mike Lee on reporters suffering from “wind envy” while covering hurricanes. If it was up to him, he’d stay inside:
I have no intention of setting foot outdoors while it is unsafe. Instead, I will set up surrogate reporters outside my bunker, lots of them. They will be mannequins, donated by local department stores and anchored to the ground with sandbags. Out of respect for family viewing, I will dress them, perhaps , as leading contenders for U.S. president and vice president. Maybe there will be a Paris Hilton entry. We will run a live online contest as to which “reporter” will be blown away first. Send me your mannequin ideas, so we can prepare for the next storm.
