Western New York Meteorologist Gets Scared On Live TV

There’s never routine when you’re on live TV, and WGRZ meteorologist Patrick Hammer had to learn that the hard way this morning.

Hammer got the scare of his life when a light erupted in the studio while he was in the middle of a prediction on live television. You know he was scared when he jumped out of the camera.

The good news is that Mr. Hammer was unhurt and was able to continue his prognosis. We wonder if that was some kind of karma from people in western New York, so the snow we got on Wednesday. (By the way… meteorologists don’t make the weather, they just report it, so it’s never their fault if we get bad weather)

If you want to see Patrick Hammer’s fear leap, check out this video posted by colleague Melissa Holmes on her Twitter page.

That’s better than snow in late April any day of the week.
