It is not just the TV stations that hype snow storms. There are a lot of people who wish a little hype wouldn't be too bad. They include school teachers, students, administrators and government workers who wouldn't mind another snow day.

But since the expectation of snowfall is nowhere near the total of someone getting a snow day then should just shut up about it.

There are some school closings reported in South Jersey, along with other delayed openings. Should the local news not report such? I mean, I myself rarely watch the local news, but I think you are making a big deal out of such a trivial issue.

I'm more interested in the violent crime, dirty cops and crooked politicians.

We certainly don't. TV stations wants to fill up 24 hours of media so everything is a hype now. People need to learn to be selective in tuning out what isn't important being broadcast.

With that said.. same thing can be said about some of these thread on City-Data. Lots of trying to make something out of nothing.

Just my .02

Couldn't agree more. In addition to the closing of many Delaware school districts within the viewing area, state offices are also closed today (Office of Management and Budget - Human Resource Management - Closings & Delays). I feel the OP's question has already been answered numerous times in this thread. S/he is either myopic by focusing only on Philly impacts, or simply seeking a reason to be annoyed.
