Egads! Snow falls in winter, streets get icy and schools close

By Charles Sercombe
The way some weathercasters and TV news stations handled Tuesday’s snowstorm, you’d think the world was about to end.
What’s wrong with these people?
Yeah, we had anywhere from four to six inches (according to our informal measurement) of snow.
From what we could tell, Hamtramck survived, although local schools closed down for the day. Oh, and then on Wednesday afternoon, it got windy and really, really cold.
Did we mention the fact that we are still in the winter season (with spring only six weeks away – on March 20)? As for the weather for the next several days, it’s going to be around 28 degrees, with maybe some flurries here and there.
On Paczki Day, next Tuesday, it’s expected to be sunny with temps at around 30. As for a prediction about the future of TV weathercasters continuing to be excited when it comes to announcing snowstorms, expect a future of escalating hysteria combined with an increase of histrionics.
Stay tuned, or better yet, turn off the TV and read a book.
