is sooooo stoooooooopid!
ok; we have a snow storm on it's way. the local news (phila based) has it's reporters in various areas reporting on absolutely nothing. reporters standing on street corners talking about loaded salt trucks, trying to see snow flurries, at hardware stores reporting shovel sales. (does everybody throw away snow shovels every year?)
it's comical at best!

Sounds like Hurricane reporting. The fools will find a broken tree limb and zoom in on it and scare the newcomers to death.

They wont discriminate between a weak hurricane and a strong one in their reporting and allways do the worst case senario.

This is dangerous because when a strong ones does come through,many viewers will will remember the reporters crying wolf before in a weak one and not take it seriously.

Even better the schools that announced they were closed for snow, when the snow isn't even supposed to start until noon. (By the way, it is 10:00 am here and the 6 to 10 inches that was supposed to start at 6:30 am still isn't here)

You just don't appreciate the warning about the end of the world do ya?? LOL
I swear they use the same footage of Penndot loading salt onto trucks every year.
They're still loading that same 1948 B model mack to hit the road!!
Now I've gotta run, I need 6 gallon milk, and 4 loaves of bread before it gets here, and I gotta fill my gas tank so's I can let it sit in the driveway for a week.

oh, and it wouldn't hurt to pick up an extra shovel for your bomb shelter - if this board makes it down there, after 3 months we'll need them! :)

Yep it's probably what most people want to see... the snow storm that isn't there- as in "are we there yet". Around here in Western Ohio the trucks were out DAYS ago putting down the liquid calcium that makes lines on the pavement and they've been dry ever since. The stuff gets worn off and blows away from the traffic. As to the snow shovels- it's probably the "in" thing to do- be seen buying one. OR maybe those people are so strong they overtorque the handles.
