AS ALWAYS, THE weather dominates discussion around here. Today it's about the impending "storm" which is "threatening to dump" up to six inches of snow on us in the overnight hours.
I hated writing weather stories. One day I was out talking to people about the massive five-inch storm on the way, and I sort of complained about it, and the guy I was interviewing stopped me by saying, "Well, it's what people are talking about. I'll read it when it comes out in the paper."
He made sense, unfortunately.
After a big storm, we'd milk it for days. Again, I understand it because it makes great front page copy and life easier on editors assigning stories.
So. Get ready, Q-Town. Here it comes, snow and ice.
Where the heck is my shovel, anyway?
