Richmond is also dealing with snow from the storm, and a reporter at our sister station WTVR decided to use an 'unusual' prop.

Jerrita Patterson froze a banana in a snowbank and turned it into a hammer.

While the anchors back in the studio were a bit shocked, morning meteorologist Carrie Rose danced with glee.

“How can you not stop ‘Hammer Time’ when JP drops a banana hammer?” Rose asked while doing her dance in six inches of snow.
