"Whacky weather" at 9News: Is it about to rain axes? (SCREEN CAPTURE)

Spelling errors: We all make them. In fact, I may have made some today -- and if so, one of our readers will let me know. In that spirit, I'm tipping the folks at 9News about a gaffe of their own -- referring to "whacky," rather than wacky, weather for hours on the station's home page, plus the affiliated article and video. Guess that means Mother Nature and forty-whacks-specialist Lizzie Borden have more in common than we knew. Check the screen grab below.
