    As Collins was trending on Twitter for his reporting Wednesday evening during the winter storm -- with thermometer and trusty measuring stick, the tools of his trade, in hand -- he was told about the cocktail.

    "I want three Pat Collinses right here right now!" he said from Germantown, Md., with a thermometer and his trusty measuring stick, the tools of his trade, in hand.

    NBC Washington viewers had already delivered a box of coffee and a 15-inch Italian hoagie from Jersey Mike's to Collins. Good looking out, guys.
