2020 has been a dark time — between the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, election fatigue, murder hornets and whatever plot twists are coming for the finale. So, in the name of self care, take a moment to enjoy this sweet viral video.
Though the Category 2 hurricane is quite extreme — it has hammered the South, leaving six people dead and thousands without power — Lenny held his own as an inspired reporter from the scene of his front door.
Gripping his mic — which may have been missing a part but he didn't let that deter him — he nailed the classic "as-you-look-over-my-shoulder" gesture, with his dad's excellent videography skills panning to follow the shot.
"This is really crazy," he adds. "So stay inside, stay safe."
He truly nails this live report — and the weather pros thought so, too!
New Orleans meteorologist Scot Pilie of WGNO-TV shared Lenny's video on Twitter, writing, "Oh. My. Goodness. — I’m about to lose my job."
Then TODAY's own Al Roker got in on the commentary.
"I am in awe of this young man," he wrote.
Same, Al! Same.
