Gee we get storms like that in Minnesota every year. That doesn't make big news. It's great to keep people informed if what's happening it certainly keeps people safe and saves lives. Other then that it just creates a panic
I think because the press has decided to make it a big story. Probably a slow news time...also they do want to provide a public service to warn people. There is also an element of the liberal press trying to push the "climate change" issue. Although there have been these kinds of storms/cold weather/hurricanes/heat waves during the evolution of the earth........now people see every storm as evidence of climate change. Crazy!
Well, people are thinking that it's going to be the, " end of the world," when it's actually similar to what we had before. A long time ago, we had a very terrible snowstorm, and I can actually remember the snow outside... being pure ice, and I would walk on it and one of the patches didn't have ice, and my whole boot got caught in a hole. I had to take my boot off in order to get my foot out. Boy, was that an exhausting experience. I live in Northeastern Ohio, and we're going to end up getting hit first; obviously. It's gonna suck, because the power will go out again, and I'm going to be freezing my booty off, but a lot of people will be too.
To take the focus off the squester, Gun Control, Sucide is killing more veterans and active duty than the general population much less the wars....etc OR maybe because the storm is so large and New York and DC were in the path. Wishing I was still in Scarborough ME right now with my lab and border collie.
To make you think twice about traveling there........so you can call your family/friends who live there to see if they're alright.........and because storms such as tornados, blizzards, hurricanes, ranstorms, and even droughts do major damages. Has any of these happened in your city
The media (especially the weather venues) make money the more viewers tune in. Nice weather doesn't get people to tune in. Big storms do. And the more hysteria created, the more revenue. Either that or people are so non self sufficient anymore, they don't know how to prepare for terrible weather even with tons of advance warning.
Because of the recent Sandy storm which left so many people without homes, there is great concern about their welfare in this storm. Some are living in their homes without power from Sandy and now this. It makes you think again about global warming and how it might affect us all. If the world doesn't need to know about this, I don't know why not.
there's a snowstorm??? hmm... news to me. Sorry if we are oblivious because of all the THUNDER and LIGHTENING going on that sounds like a herd of elephants coming through down South. We have storms all the time with hurricane force winds. Just had some tornadoes what? a week ago was it? Did the entire country know much less the rest of the world know about that? Seriously doubt the libtards in the media got all heated up about that or even gave it a second look. Much less the idiots on the Weather Channel who don't even acknowledge we are a state. So your problem is??????
