THE WEATHER OUTSIDE IS FRIGHTENING
I can not believe that I have not written a post in a year. In my mind it was only a moment ago that I sat down and wrote about the things that were on my mind.
Well, OK, enough about my lack of, shall we say tenacity. I love writing the blog, and somehow the time gets away, and what is news worthy and timely becomes staid and less than interesting.
Today and for the last week the only topic of conversation has been the weather. It is winter, and the last I checked winter is cold and yes there is often snow. The weather people in Columbus, don't really have major weather to discuss, so they sensationalize the possibilities of what the weather could be. And often the possibilities are not even in Columbus, but often north of us in Mansfield or in Mt. Vernon, or Utica. My geography is very bad, so I am not really even sure where these surrounding towns are, but what I do know is I don't live there. I live in Columbus, Ohio, the capitol of the state of Ohio, and since the TV station is located in Columbus, Columbus weather should be the lead city, whether the weather is interesting or not........how was that for a run on and on sentence.
Is this sensationalism of the weather any different from Brian Williams' faulty memory. Everyone just accepts the fact that the weather person never gets it right. Should we be comfortable with such low expectations?
