Top 5 Videos of the Week – Nov. 10-16


Our Top 5 Videos of the Week captures winter weather during the Fall months and an amazing light snow!

The first video is the best example of why you need to slow down when the roads are hazardous.  Watch closely as a vehicle slides out of control and into a Wyoming Highway Patrol officer’s car! Thankfully the officer sustained only minor injuries but a close call for sure!

Here’s an idea of what TO do when there’s snow in your backyard – find a creative way to get it off your car!  More than a half of foot of snow has already fallen this month in Green Bay, and with more on the way I’m sure his idea will come in handy.

Would you take a long walk in the snow if the entire bridge was covered? Our third video is at the Gatlinburg Sky Bridge in Tennessee, the longest pedestrian suspension bridge in North America!  Did you know that Gatlinburg is the Gateway to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the most visited National Park in the country!

From the Gateway to the Smoky Mountains to the Gateway to the West, if you blinked, you might have missed this rare but exciting moment in St. Louis, Missouri!  The Taurid Meteor Shower reached its peak activity, and a meteor was caught on camera lighting up the sky behind the famous Arch!

And finally what about bison making snow angels?  Now we can add that to the list as this excited animal took advantage of all the snow over the last week and jumped right on into the fresh powder!
