East Coast Storm Blows Over Weather Network Reporters (VIDEO)

Yep. The storm that hit Canada's east coast on Wednesday was a mean one. It brought winds stronger than 2004's "White Juan", plenty of snow and knocked power out for thousands in Atlantic Canada.

It also made life nasty for reporters who have to stand outside and tell us that it's a bad idea to stand outside in the middle of a blizzard.

Reporters Mark Robinson and Chris Scott were doing a segment on the storm when they were blown over by a huge gust.

"The only storm I can compare this too is a hurricane," one of them said. "This has the added bonus of having the snow in the air... like standing in a sand blaster," one of them said before being knocked down.

We got cold just watching this video.
