A few locals gave us an entertaining "report" from the gulf coast during the Memorial Day weekend.

As "Alberto" approached the gulf coast, an amateur "reporter" found a few local folks on the beach and their "eyewitness account" of the weather approaching was great.

Yes, it was all for entertainment purposes, but you could tell that they were all taking a jab at the reports of this storm approaching during Memorial Day weekend.

Several friends along the gulf coast told me that local television stations in Alabama and Florida were reporting on "Alberto" as if it was a Category 5 was approaching. Thus, that may have been the motivation behind this skit or "report."

If we learned one thing from this, you can always count on locals to add an entertaining twist to anything.
