67.4" of snow for the season for the city of Philadelphia. 2nd most snowiest since records have been kept.

Many Suburban areas easily surpassed that total and theres been over 20 winter events this season . Needless to say bring on Spring/Summer.

And I'm going to say it again, if philly wasn't going to get a lot of snow then they could have discussed it during the weather segment. Not the 1st story

Wildwood Crest received 10.5 " of snow last night. Cape May County got buried. They are part of the region.Officially Philadelphia recorded 4.5". What is wrong with the local news reporting this. Relax

Since its a philly tv station, they could have waited until the weather segment to discuss wildwood. And I believe wildwood has a local station

South Jersey has always been part of the Philly viewing area. Maybe it irks you, but I am glad they include us. NBC40 is our local station but their news is only on at 11pm on Sundays.

Hard to do when the local news took over the 7 AM national news slots this morning, because the 2 or 3 hours of weather coverage beforehand just wasn't enough! I couldn't believe it!

Bring on Spring!

And the weather was directly responsible for that deadly crash. So the weather was newsworthy as well. WHICH IS WHY THEY MADE A BIG DEAL OF THE UPCOMING SNOW IN AN ATTEMPT TO WARN PEOPLE TO BE CAREFUL.

What is wrong with you?

Perhaps if it were your child or family that skidded out on the bridge and was killed you'd understand.

They started talking about the minor storm on Friday night which was stupid. Why not wait until Sunday Night since it was not that big of deal? Now if they were expecting 12 inches then yes I would say talk about it on friday but not for 2 inches.
