Meteorologist Fired for "Positive" Snow Report | An Accuweather meteorologist who described Monday's massive snowfall as "beautiful, spectacular, wonderful, magnificent and awe-inspiring" has been fired.

The rookie meteorologist was halfway through a radio report on a Philadelphia AM station, when the line went dead. Moments later a different voice came on describing the snow storm as "deadly, disastrous, life-threatening and terrifying."

Accuweather President Joel Myers apologized to the radio station's manager, and said that the "positive thinking" meteorologist would "never work in this business again."
