A meteorologist in Michigan named Garry Frank can't help what a cold year its been so far, it's just his job to report the weather. Frank wishes it was warmer and he didn't have the dreary duty of reporting the cold days ahead. April 10, Frank had enough of all the complaining from his coworkers about the cold temperatures.

He decided to let his co-workers know just how he felt about the situation during a live broadcast and his rant quickly went viral quickly racking up over 1.8 million views. "You guys are dragging me down," Frank said at the start of the weather segment. "Every time I get done with the seven-day [forecast] you guys are like ‘ugh,’ ‘gosh.’ And then you expect me to be chipper for five straight hours. It’s miserable."
Frank then gets to work on reporting the week's seven-day weather forecast and it's all cold again with temperatures as low as 19 degrees. What is funny is how he reports the depressing forecast as he is clearly exasperated. "What do you want me to do — lie to you? I’ll put 70 every day next time."

Commenters on the video responded in many ways but mostly positive. One comment said the poor weatherman was suffering from burnout will others pointed out it's nice to see a real human being on the news. Others called for Fox 17's weather segment to be syndicated and asked for more Garry in their lives. Frank's weather rant even made it to Jimmy Kimmel Live Thursday night.
