A meteorologist has gone viral for explaining why you shouldn't eat icicles:
Katie Nikolaou is a meteorologist with KMEG in Sioux City, Iowa. She got her college degree a year and a half ago, but she had wanted to be a meteorologist since she was 4 years old.
"I was in a tornado and I really enjoyed it," she told BuzzFeed News. "Instead of being freaked out, I just kind of went with it."
She also recently got started on TikTok, where she said she's been a longtime lurker. She said she kept seeing videos of people eating icicles that had formed on their roofs, and she just knew she had to set the record straight.
"Please don't do that. I'm a meteorologist, I should know," she says in a now-viral TikTok.
"When icicles form it's from water that runs off your roof," she continues. "You know what else is on your roof? Bird poop. A lot of it."
Ewwww. The video has millions of views!
