like this?

Again, last evening, the tv news urging (hyping) people to stay home and stay off the roads this morning due to upwards of 1" of ice. Woke up to nothing. Being litigious is good if only to sue the news stations. Be afraid of the weather everyone!

It`s all about holding onto their viewers but the stations can`t be sued for inaccurate weather forecasts.

I watched the weather report last night. Their models showed freezing rain north of I80. But the weatherman insisted it would also happen here because the models "have trouble seeing drizzle." That made for a good laugh before bed. Even they don't believe their models.

Shelter in place and be afraid everyone. Wow.
They hype every snowflake that falls and it`s the parents who put the pressure on the schools to close. If Jason`s bare hands are exposed to 20-degree temperatures while he waits 5 or 10 minutes for the school bus, he`ll likely lose a couple fingers. It`s the parents who are weenies, not the kids.....generally speaking of course.

I`ve seen kids waiting for their school bus wearing shorts on days that the temps hang around the freezing temperature. It`s not unusual to see dad waiting with them and he`s not properly dressed for the weather either. Some people should not have children.
