Now that broadcast televsion is so thoroughly corporatized, there’s practically nothing local left except the weather. It’s the local tv people’s one chance at air time. So they hype the weather all they can.
Supposedly we’re supposed to have inches and inches of snow, slowing the city to a bare crawl.
It’s snowed alright, but hardly anything worth mentioning. This very morning it was coming down thick. An hour later the sun was out, the skies were blue, the snow was melted and the pavement was dry.
