I have to say, this “Amazon dress” thing has been cracking me up! There have been an infinite amount of articles about “the dress” and I had to share the Dallas version of how I ended up in the viral “meteorologist collage.” (As many of you know, I’m an anchor/reporter at Fox in Dallas, I don’t do the weather and I’m not a part of their private Facebook page, where it was initially shared.)

If you haven’t seen it, here is the back story.

And, here is the original post on Reddit that got the whole thing going.

The person who made the original post is Meteorologist Jennifer Myers, who works with me on the weekend shows. A couple of weeks ago, Jen and I were getting ready in the green room and she commented on the purple and black dress hanging up behind us;Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

“Oh, there is my new dress.”

I replied “No, that’s my new dress.”

We went back and forth for way too long on that. Then we realized we both had the dress. I had randomly seen it online and ordered it. She told me about how she heard about the dress in a group meteorologist Facebook page. She commented that she should make a collage of everyone…. and so the viral post got started.

I have to admit, my favorite part is that we all keep getting teased for looking like Star Trek characters and ironically enough, Jen is a huge Trekkie. You’ll never insult her with that comment.

Also, as the only non-meteorologist in the group, I HAD to order the green one since they can’t wear it on the green screen.

The maroon one will make a debut on the air this Saturday and… after that I’ll probably have to banish all 3 to the back of my closet because these darn dresses have made such spectacles of themselves!
