In this modern age of near digital miracles there’s no longer a need to even look out the window in order to see that it’s snowing.
There’s a near avalanche of weather news in the mainstream media – TV Newscasts and Radio reports of every aspect of the snow.
Already I’ve seen cars sliding on the roads and, of course, the roads to the suburbs looking pretty much like a parking lot. The sea of red brake lights looks ominous coming through the HD television screen. However, few television journalists note that these people deserve every bit of the hardship that comes with suburban life, given their decision to live as far away from people of color as possible.
Makes me think they’re scumbags.
Still, it’s hard not to be impressed with Doppler radar and live, late-breaking street view coverage of the snow mess. However, all of the media celebration makes me realize that as long as the weather is good enough for newsies to march around in, it’s really not that bad.
In fact, sometimes even newsies out in a "weather event" tend to exaggerate the details in order to sell a good story.
But the weather coverage is so captivating that I don’t really mind the hyperbole. In fact, I’m not happy until Katie Horner has a crazy look in her eye after more than a day on TV giving constant updates.
Tomorrow life in this town comes to a stop and Kansas will dig out earlier and far more efficiently than KC Proper.
Thankfully, mainstream media tends to ignore this kind of disparity in favor of more sensational coverage.
