Break in the Weather. 2016-01-24

imageIn case you’re living under a rock, there is a snowstorm on the East Coast right now. In some places it’s a blizzard, along the shore it’s high tide, lapping waves on the beach, winds challenging even the most anchored anchor. It is bone chilling cold, no flights, no schools or businesses open, and power outages everywhere. Continual warnings by state and local officials at the press conference strongly warn the public to stay inside, stay off the roads, don’t go out, hunker down, bring your pets inside, and we hope you stocked up on Bread and water because even if you could go out, the store shelves are bare.

All broadcasts have a weather lead-in mapping out the current weather conditions. We should all be prepared though because there has been around-the-clock coverage of this impending end-of-the-world Storm. A fourth of the country is shut down because of the storm. There is a smidgen of people who aren’t inside with a hot chocolate and TV remote right now, however.  It’s the weather people! Here’s Dylan and crew in a truck driving up the interstate we told all of you not to even think about using. Yep, it’s snowing here. Stay off the roads, folks. My question is why is your butt on the road right now? Let’s cut to Rehema on the shore. The satellite keeps cutting out, but through the pixelated transmission we can see a person in a dark heavy quilted coat with hood pulled down covering their face barely able to stand because the wind is so strong. My husband looks up and says,” Look at that guy getting blown around out there. ” I realize it’s hard to tell, but that’s a woman under all those coats. She tells us to avoid the seashore today. Stay home. Don’t come out here. I would implore you weather guys to just look over your shoulders. There isn’t another soul around except you and your cameraman.   Everybody is staying off the shore, shouldn’t you join them? We’re now going to Boston where they aren’t expecting any more than 2″ of snow which is so much better than all the snow they had last year. Wait, I see somebody going about their daily business. It ooks like the perfect time to stop them and ask how they feel about not getting all that snow that’s falling in DC right now. “Ummmm….. Fine. ” There; you have it. It’s not as bad in Boston this year as last.

When I was a kid I remember snowstorms and blizzards were just a normal part of winter. We were told by local meteorologists that it was going to snow overnight. When we woke up the next morning we’d look out the window to see how much it snowed; and depending on what we saw whether 1 inch or 25 inches we’d listen with our fingers crossed to the local radio for any school closings. At that point we’d either get ready for school or ready for no school. If we could get out of the house, we’d don our winter grab and grab a shovel. After shoveling, then snowmen and snow angels were sure to follow. With red cheeks and frozen hands we’d burst into the house stomping the snow off our boots before removing them, and dump our coats, hats, and gloves in a pile by the door. Hot chocolate and a good book followed. It wasn’t a big deal. It was Illinois and it was winter. Snow happens.

Wait just a minute there’s a new breaking news report on right now. I wonder what’s going on? Well, to save time, I’ll just give you the abbreviated albeit complete version: It is cold, windy, and snowing in some places.  Stay inside until it passes… Sandy
