Kyle Clark, News Anchor at Denver’s KUSA-TV, went on a rant against people posting pictures of snow covered patio furniture. Kyle wants to end the somber winter spirit and replace it with excitement over the uncelebrated season. The video gained so much attention that it was featured on Today, Yahoo News, NPR, and Gawker.
Clark’s message is to embrace the beauty of winter instead of thinking of it as a season that limits us to being locked indoors where it’s nice and toasty. Why not ski, sled, or make snow angels! Get out there and have some fun in the snow.
“Why is it that every time it snows, we whip out photos of our patio sets like we’re showing off baby photos of our kids.”
“What a sad way to celebrate the new season.”
Apparently, some people haven’t got the message as seen during the current winter snow storm in parts of the Northeast.

Don’t worry, if you just must take pictures of your snow covered patio furniture. Send them to The Weather Channel. Matt Sampsons made this quirky song about snow covered patio furniture.
