PETERSBURG, Va. -- Meteorologist Nikki-Dee Ray attempts to take on a new job in her weekly segment, "Nikki-Dee, Can You Be Me?" This week, Nikki-Dee traveled to Pamplin Historical Park in Petersburg where she was transformed back into the 19th Century for low tea and games on the lawn.

"There is a lot more involved than just eating," she said. "I had to dress in complete period attire."

The costume included black, low-heeled shoes and a hooped skirt.

"There were so many layers. The entire outfit weighed 25 pounds!" Nikki-Dee said.

At the park, Nikki-Dee hosted 12 guests who sat down for tea, croissants, cookies and chocolate.

"After tea it was time for games and dancing. I really enjoyed bowling and dancing the Virginia Reel," Nikki-Dee said.
