There's So Much Snow That...

Yet another major winter storm is blanketing the east coast of the United States. Blizzard warnings have been issued for New York City, Washington DC, parts of Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware.  Flights have been canceled, schools closed and the federal government has been shut down for three days. The storm is expected to dump 10 inches of snow in Washington DC, up to 20 inches in New York and up to 22 inches in Philadelphia. The east coast isn’t the only place feeling this blast of winter.  In fact 47 states have snow on the ground.

 So fill in the blank. There’s so much snow that…

    There is so much snow that Joan and I decided this would be a great opportunity to cash in on the snow day that she requested in Aug 2009. At the time, we had been dating for six months and she wanted a chance to spend more time together, and she felt that a snow day was a reaasonable request. Honestly, when she requested a snow day, she had no idea we were going to get a snow week. We are located in in the Annapolis Maryland area and we are conveniently snowed in together, approaching our 1 year anniversay April 23rd.

    Al Gore has gone in to hibernation because he would have to eat his words about "global warming". But, he won a Nobel Peace Price for "Global Warming".

    the only thing left to eat is Snow Ice Cream. (;>)
    Here's the recipe:1 gallon snow 1 cup white sugar 1 tablespoon vanilla extract 2 cups milk
    When it starts to snow, place a large, clean bowl outside to collect the flakes. When full, stir in sugar and vanilla to taste, then stir in just enough milk for the desired consistency. Serve at once.

    I was wondering that nobody mentioned about hourly empoyee whether they are going to be paid or not? If not, what will be their chance to pay bills. It has been almost a week now since I stopped working because of the snow and will not for the next 3 days? Please forward you thoughts on that. Thnks, Seble

    How dare you pitiful newscasters make the unemployment situation a RACIAL ISSUE>...you are so desperate for a story its uncanny. YOu have lost a viewer for good. Fox is looking a whole lot better. I am sick of your put down of society that happen not to be minorities. I am sick of being poor with no medical insurance and helping my duahgter struggle paying bills and school loans because her school told her the only grants and scholarships were for Minorities......So who is gonna represent my minority who is discriminated against daily. COme to New Jersey and see WHO is collecting Welfare and food stamps......then you can talk about the minority unemployment. They should remane it "those who train their families to live on welfare " rather than those who are not working!

    Your caption reporting on the weather for Washington D.C. is technically incorrect:
    You have the caption reading, "Washington". Washington is a state in the Pacific Northwest. Washington District of Columbia is where you are currently reporting.

    Just saw the stats on unemployment and the comparison between whites, Latinos and African Americans. while I do not challenge the stats, the comparisons are NOT as presented. A look at Whites vs African Americans shows that BOTH were nearly double what they were a year ago. There is no disparity between races as effected by the economic down turn. We are all affected equally!!

    IF I had to loose my job, I would follow orders, but at the same time it will hurt. If the economy wasn't bad, then I'll step in. The blame should go on those who made the decision telling the Security guard to only see and report. Its like telling a Cop not to use his weapons, or a firefighter not to use his fire hose.

    What's up with Gary Tuchman? What was he thinking interviewing a bus driver while the she was driving? Did he not think that she would be nervous being on camera? And while driving a bus load of NYC passengers? Come on, I know you guys want to get dramatic pictures of the bus plowing through the snow filled streets. But this was definitely an error in judgement that forewent the safety of the passengers in lieu of a good shot for CNN TV.
