In Case You Missed It: Shoppers battle wind and wind wins

You think the wind in Las Vegas is bad? Well, it can be, but Norwegians had it really bad the other day trying to get a little Christmas shopping done.

Video shows shoppers in downtown Aalesund struggling to walk in a straight line because the wind is so strong.

People are having to do the anti-gravity lean Michael Jackson made famous in “Smooth Criminal.”

That was cool. This is kind of scary.

In fact, police were on scene to simply help people cross the street. The strong winds from Storm Ivar also knocked out power and suspended the use of buses and boats.

Imagine what would have happened if you jumped?
