It's that very special time of year again. No, not Christmas season. The time when I absolutely refuse to watch local news on the tv.
This is because every snowflake (and possibly some white lint) is treated like a blizzard. And God help us if some snow actually sticks on the ground! Wow, then it's time to don those (fill in the network color) parkas and rush out and actually show us what snow looks like! Yes, the intrepid reporter will, without fail, point to and actually pick up some snow to show us, the ignorant viewer.
Yes I know that snow is good for ratings, people want to find out if schools are going to be closed (they're run by unions, of course they are closed) or if you will be able to get to work. (unless you work for Dianne Linn you are expected to show up if you want to get paid)
But please, spare me the drama.
