It does become newsworthy when it takes hours and hours to drive home from work. I had many 4 hour and as long as 8 hour commutes from Quincy to Franklin ( about 35 miles) in snowstorms, and that was leaving work early at about 1:00 pm.

Here in Kansas City, if we get a few inches of snow, they close the highways.

When I lived in LA and a heavy rainstorm hit, you would have thought we had Hurricane Katrina headed at us. The news for day was only about the weather. Very funny in many ways. I often thought, "C'mon people, there's no flood and you won't melt!" Now snow is a different issue...

Several years ago we were in San Diego, we had left a huge snowstorm and arrived to a very welcome 79 F. I couldn't believe the people complaining about how they were freezing! Then it started to drizzle and they thought they would die.
We just smiled and pictured our snowstorm at home wondering what they would do with that

Last year there was an article in the LA Times calling Seattle "snow wimps" because the city shuts down when we have snow storms. Many Seattleites were peeved because this was coming from LA who can't even handle rain and a state that pretty much doesn't get snow outside of the mountains.

I have noticed the change in weather forecasting here in Texas this year too. They talk like it is going to be the End of all Storms coming. It comes, and it is nothing! I know the weather people are trying to pull viewers from the other channels, but really, overblowing weather forecasts can lead to a panic in some people, while others can't figure out what all the hype is for. Wish they would timper their broadcasts and tell us of impending bad storms, and be honest about normal weather fronts coming in. Not all storms can be the End of All! Get real and has really made me skeptable about watching much of anything unless it is really a bad one.

New Jersey and New York

My heart was breaking hearing HOW MANY people in New Jersey and New York are still without power and food!
Saw it on CNN yesterday!

It is sad that the east coast gets wammrd again without some getting a chance to get warm, or a good meal...wish there was more I could do personally. I know that the best thing to do is donate to the red cross...but after doing the best we can with that donation...I still wish I could help more...

Whispered, I feel the same. As a family we have donated to Red Cross and at work we had a blood drive. Nothing more I can do and watching the poor East Coast get hammered again is heartbreaking. Last night was watching the Weather Channel and they were interviewing people who re-lost their power to the ice and wind. They sounded beaten to their soul. Much more than just losing everything...like they have lost hope. I wanted to grab them in a warm hug. I feel so powerless to help. So very sad.

My friends in Long Island have been posting which gas stations are open and how long the lines are.

I am now hearing stories of even the people that have generators, having their generators break, not being able to get gas. Gee, one news story I saw, Staten Island is looking for clean underwear!!! The things we take for granted.
