It Is What it Is
Tuesday morning's assignment involved a trip to Montrose. Our meterologists believed there was a good chance that parts of the northern tier would get hammered by several inches of lake effect snow. It turns out that snowfall amounts were much less than anticipated, but it still warranted mention. It doesn't take much to slick up the roads, and the storm hit overnight. That meant a potentially tricky morning rush hour.
I'm saving the best for last. I had it easy. All I had to do is stand there and talk-- working to hit the right tone. You have to warn people of potential weather related issues, but not get panicky and overly dramatic over two inches of snow and single digit temperatures. It's Pennsylvania. It happens in winter-- a lot.
Satellite truck operator Corey Burns and photographer Mike Erat were the ones who had the real hard jobs, and they deserve the bulk of the credit.
