Meg Coyle, Seattle KING 5 Reporter, Called 'Killjoy' At Sledding Location (VIDEO)

The treacherous Seattle weather may have shut down the airport for the first time in 10 years, but the snow and ice also created a nice canvas for eager residents to sled down city streets earlier this week.

Seattle reporter Meg Coyle was warning residents about the icy conditions at Queen Anne Hill, a popular sledding spot, when a woman approached her, notably unhappy the journalist was interrupting the action (0:23).

"Thank you so much for ruining the fun," the woman says to Coyle, as she jumps into the live shot. "Total, complete killjoy."

The woman, who's first name is Nicole, expressed why she was frustrated with Coyle's report on 97.3 KIRO FM's "Dori Monson Show."

"The crux of her reporting continuously was the dangers of sledding down Queen Anne Hill and that she was appalled that the police kept driving by and couldn't believe the police were doing nothing to ruin this horribly dangerous sledding situation," Nicole told the station.

Coyle said she was only doing her job.

In the video, Coyle seems a bit taken aback by Nicole's reaction, but what is perhaps more entertaining is the anchor's response to the unexpected incident.

"OK, OK, Waah, Waah, Waah," co-anchor Dennis Bounds says when the camera goes back to studio.

Their report then continues by mentioning other areas being closed off due to weather conditions. But let's be honest, no one's really listening after that.
