After a impressively terrible 2014, Don Lemon starts off the year right by hopping in CNN's specially-equipped "Blizzardmobile" and reporting from the streets of New York. The one problem of course being that New York City's snow estimates were way off and nearly all of it is gone as of Tuesday morning.
Viewers noted that the Blizzardmobile was routinely passed by such anti-winter assault vehicles as the Toyota Prius and by all appearances was just a regular van. If only this had happened instead:

Two men arrested in Houston are accused of stealing an iPad and using it to take selfies that they unknowingly uploaded to the owner's iCloud account.
The men appeared in the photos displaying money they are also accused of taking from the victim.
Investigators arrested the pair on theft charges late Wednesday.
Meanwhile in New Zealand… it’s “silly season,” the summer months when people are doing a lot of drinking and celebrating.
Apparently they are also doing some pretty stupid stuff.
The NZ Herald recently spoke with a patient flow co-ordinator at Middlemore Hospital in Auckland, and learned about all the dumb accidents they have been seeing lately.
For instance, a man was mowing his lawn when the blades got stuck on sticks and grass. He tried to remove the debris with his hand, and the blade shattered his bones. (He didn’t lose his fingers.)
Among other incidents they have seen are people sticking their tongues in blenders, smashing windows to break into their own homes, chopping their fingers when trying to cut frozen hamburger patties, and a number of chainsaw-related accidents.
“Summer is a time where we get a lot of sporting injuries, but we’ve also got lots of injuries that happen because people don’t engage their minds,” the hospital said.
