What Is Better Than Monks Having A Snowball Fight?

Monks1

(PCM) It is a very rare occurrence for the city of Jerusalem in Israel to get any type of significant snowfall, so when a rare snowstorm passed through the area the people were incredibly excited.

It seems that no one was more excited than a group of Francisan Monks who were videoed having a pretty epic snowball fight, still dressed head to toe in their traditional black robes.

The monks are seen having an fantastic time running around the yard and pelting each other with the snowballs. It is truly a sight to behold. The video has since gone viral and has already surpassed over 500,000 views and continues to climb!

Massachusetts Man Has Started Selling Snow To Other Areas Of The Country

Snow1

(PCM) All of us here on the East Coast are without a doubt tired of all the snow that has been dumped on our region lately, however one Massachusetts man has decided to take advantage of the situation and hopefully create a little cash on the side.

Kyle Waring came up with a wonderful idea while he was out shoveling the wintery mess. He started the website, ShipSnowyo.com and began offer to ship 6 pounds of snow from winter storm Neptune for the price of $89.

At first, Waring was offering 16 ounce bottles of snow, however they were completely melted by the time that they reached their final destination. He has now discovered a way to ship 6 pounds of snow by wrapping it in aluminum foil and sealing it in a plastic bag in an insulated container.

The snow is then shipped overnight delivery to ensure that it arrives before the snow begins to melt. Waring claims that when the snow arrives despite some melting you can still get about 10-15 good snowballs out of it.

Believe it or not, people are already buying it up, proving that people will buy just about anything crazy and unique on the internet. Waring is already sold out of his initial offerings for six pounds of snow and plans to create several more to keep up with the demand.

He is also offering a whopping 10 pounds of snow for $119 dollars!

Wienermobile Crashes In Northern Pennsylvania

Wienermobile

(PCM) There was no way we could resist sharing this one!  One of the famous Oscar Meyer Wienermobiles crashed while traveling on icy road conditions in Enola, Pennsylvania.

While it appears that no one was seriously injured in the accident, the Wienermobile suffered significant damage to the front bumper and a cracked windshield. Nearly every passer-by on the roadway was stopping to take pictures of the incident.

The Oscar Meyer company uses a fleet of six Wienermobiles for promotional opportunities since 1936.  Unfortunately now they are no longer a complete package.

Punxutawny Phil Is A “Wanted” Groundhog!

Ground-hog1

(PCM) The Merrimack Police Department in New Hampshire have hilariously issued an arrest warrant for world-famous groundhog Punxutawny Phil for failing to warn them about just how bad this winter was going to be.

The police say they believe that Punxutawny Phil is hiding out in a warm toasty hole and they warned citizens that the groundhog should be considered armed and dangerous.

Back on Groundhog Day, Phil did see his shadow which means six more weeks of winter weather, however no one in the Northeast region of the country was prepared for the amount of snow that has been dumped in area in the past few weeks.

Since the Groundhog Day tradition began back in 1887, Phil has seen his shadow 102 times and according to several sources has an accuracy rating of about 80%.  Currently two more major winter storms are lined up to hit the New England area on top of the six to seven feet of snow they are already attempting to dig out of this year.

Uh-Oh, Punxsutawney Phil Sees His Shadow, So We Face Six More Weeks Of Winter

Ground-hog1

(PCM) Much to everyone’s disappointment, especially those of us in the North East regions of the country, Groundhog Day mascot Punxsutawney Phil has seen his shadow, so you know what that means … six more grueling weeks of winter!

To commemorate Groundhog Day, a tradition that has taken place in the town of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania since 1887, groundhog  Punxsutawney Phil was brought out at around 7:25am in the morning when we learned about his six more weeks of winter prediction.  It is said that Groundhog Day first originated as a way to celebrate the middle of the winter solstice and the beginning of the spring equinox.

It generally seems that Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow more often than not, because out of all the Groundhog Day predictions that are on record, he has seen his shadow 101 times and not seen it on only a measly 17 times. The last time there was an early spring prediction was back in 2013, however we suffered a brutal winter that year as well, so you never know just how much certainty you can place on a groundhog and his shadow.

TV Weatherman Cory McCloskey Hilariously Rolls With It After Weather Map Goes Haywire

Cory-McCloskey1

(PCM) We all know that the state of Arizona can have some absolutely scorching temperatures, but upwards of 2,000 degrees?  That is downright apocalyptic, however that is just one of the haywire temperatures that the weather map featured during a recent news broadcast by weatherman Cory McCloskey.

Never missing a beat, McCloskey hilariously continued to roll with the broadcast cracking jokes when suddenly his weather map began showing numbers that were absolutely insane. For example the map showed the city of Ahwatukee, Az at 1270 degrees and McCloskey deadpanned “I’m not authorized to evacuate Ahwatukee, but that temperature seems pretty high”.

As the news anchors begin to giggle off camera, McCloskey continued with his jokes saying that Wickenburg that showed a temperature high of 2385 was a “total loss” before referring to several “safe spots” that just so happened to show the correct temperatures.

McCloskey is a veteran weatherman and has been with FOX 10 in Phoenix since 2001. The station posted a statement about the incident saying that sometimes live news and technology just doesn’t cooperate, however it is of great importance to have smart people who can think fast on their feet.

McCloskey has certainly proved that!  You can watch his hilarious weather broadcast in the video below:
