Bad Photography Sunday: Satellite Snow

I have to admit that standing in a snow storm is not my favorite things to do, but when you take a job in TV news, you know it comes along with the territory.

This photo was taken Tuesday morning.  We chose a pretty good location for our reports during Newswatch 16 This Morning-- a busy intersection in Mount Pocono.  It was well lit, so you could see what was going on.  It's one of the major intersections in the Poconos.

What you can't see here is we're in the parking lot of a Burger King.  That's key.  Here's why.  The first reasons are easy-- hot food and a bathroom.

We're also out of the way.  I love those people who continually complain about TV reporters standing along a road in a snow storm.  I don't do that.  It's not safe.  We'll find a place close enough to see what's going on, but far enough away to stay away from cars, trucks, and plows.

We were spoiled last year.  It didn't snow.  The party's over.  Winter's here.
