There’s no news, like snow news?

Published February 4, 2014 by Malia

I live in Nebraska.  Home of really bizarre weather.  And, this winter has been no exception to the rule.  We’ve yo-yo’ed from the mid-50’s to the negatives in less than 24 hours on a pretty regular basis this winter.  Surprisingly, we’ve been rather on the slim side when it comes to snow.  Today we’ve been getting the first real, “epic” snow of the year.  Along with serious snow comes lots and lots of updates from the various news stations regarding the snow.  Which I find to be weird.

I understand when there’s thunderstorms and the news needs to update us on the severity and if there’s tornadic activity/possibility.  I don’t understand why they feel the need to do the same for snow.  If I want to see what it looks like outside, I’ll look out the window.   I do no’t need to see the live camera footage of the conditions outside.  It snows here at some point every winter; if you can’t figure out what snow is or that it can be dangerous to drive on, it may be time for you to move somewhere warmer.  Like Tahiti.
