1-3-14 Snow-de-o-…D’oh

We had our first “blizzard” of the season.

Blizzard is a term that has become as overused as hero.  The Weather Channel continues its obnoxious habit of naming snow storms, but I bet they don’t name the storms that only hit North Dakota or Buffalo or Maine.

There are definitely places that had a blizzard but 6.4 inches in Central Park does not make the cut. It snowed and it was very pretty.

  1. I agree. I used to work often in Buffalo. They would just scoff at the TV reaction to 2″ of snow in NYC, while they handled 2 feet and more without a whimper. In fact, without any notice! Snow gets ratings. Why would the major networks devote their morning schedule to an innocuous storm like today to full coverage? Ratings!

  2. I couldn’t agree more … about those overused words. ‘Hero’ seems to have taken on a whole new meaning, and ‘brave’ too. I found it confusing, when I’d first moved here. People thought I was ‘brave’ for writing some silliness in a blog?! Some woman didn’t have the ‘courage’ to take part in a photo-a-day challenge.

    We got the same snowstorm. Haven’t been out yet. Loved the snow-selfie 😀
