Top 5 Videos of the Week – 12/7/19


Our top 5 videos of the week showcase ways to deal with Winter Weather in FALL.


First — remind yourself what season it really is by being around colorful leaves while the snow is flying!  That’s what a group of ducks did in Michigan with some of the first flakes of the month!


When there’s icing underway, one option to play defense again Mother Nature is to use a hockey stick in Buffalo, NY.  Just remember, you don’t want to end up in the penalty box by using something metal — that can scratch the glass and damage wiper blades.


If you’re feeling athletic and want to avoid a snowpile, the sport of pole vaulting might come in handy.  However, with storm totals more than foot across Schenectady County, NY, you might want to set the bar higher!


Our last two videos capture our furry friends “sliding” right into winter!  A dog in Goldfield, IA, helps his best friend enjoy sledding, the perfect way to celebrate a snow day.


And finally, a video that YOU have watched for more than 20 thousand minutes this week.  Pet owners created a snow maze in their backyard during what was a record-breaking snowstorm for Albany, NY!
