Try as I might, I am unable to understand why weather reports tend to over exaggerate impending bad weather. Part of it, I suppose, could be that they want to present a worse-case scenario so that no one is caught off-guard. Another part could be that they want to drive ratings and page views. Likely it's a combination of both along with several other factors I've never even come close to considering. But no matter the cause, it just doesn't work. You whip people into a frenzy too many times and they start to ignore you, change the channel, or visit another website. Besides, people like us love snowstorms. Stop pretending it's the end of the world.
