I live in the land of chicken little weather reporters. To be fair, we get a lot of snow in the winter. And really bad storms do come our way. And to be fair, the Mall of America closed in MN yesterday at the height of Christmas shopping season. So clearly there is a bad weather system in the Midwest. But I cannot tell you how many times the local weather people whip everyone into a mad frenzy about some blizzard which will cause mass mayhem and death only to have a few flakes fall. The worst is when they cancel school because of it and I am stuck home with stir crazy kids who sooo need to be in school driving their teachers batty instead of me.
This latest storm has solidified my belief that the local weather team needs a hobby. Was it a bit slippery on the roads? Yes, but again, this is Michigan. It is pretty much slippery from November until March and you just roll with it. But the weathermen insist on issuing warning after warning and freaking everyone out. And now that I write that you know while I am sleeping we will get dumped on and I will eat my words. But so help me God, if they cancel school and there is not 12 feet of snow on the ground and a sheet of ice 2 feet thick on the ground I am coming down to one of the news stations and having me some words.
