The Triad Is Under a Winter Weather Advisory – YOU THINK! It’s been Winter since December 21st. It’s even been cold recently.
Now with some moisture over Texas heading our way, the local television stations are simply peeing in their pants over the opportunity for some winter weather. Wall-To-Wall reporting of any sort and type of precipitation. Stories about the homeless. Stories about the traffic. Stories about school and business closings. In-depth personality interviews of Salt Truck Drivers.
Winter Weather is the Piedmont’s version of Britney Spears or OJ Simpson. We are a TRAIN WRECK and we’ll watch anything about Winter Weather. I’m waiting for the first station to have “My First Snow Storm”, the feel good show that features your favorite TV personalities remembering their first snow storm or in the case of a few – anticipation of their first snow storm.
Let me save you some time – The SCHOOLS WILL BE CLOSED THURSDAY, despite the weather (The Chicken Little Effect) and Greensboro Sports will be open as usual. While we’d like to sit and watch our name on appear on the closings crawl all day long; but we’ve got things to do.
All this Winter Weather Hype makes this one of the best games in town, at least this Thursday.
