Everything in that link from the question mark and beyond is cyberstalker gibberish and can be trimmed out.

This concludes today's lesson on link copying. There will be a test on Monday.

On another topic, I think we should form a posse and raid that news headquarters and waterboard them until they tell us who invented the term "bomb cyclone", then hunt down that individual and give him an atomic wedgie to punish him for being a moron.

Google is your friend. And it shouldn't be a surprise that the weather media took an informal term used among meteorologists since the 40's, and turned it into hysteria. It actually has a precisely defined meaning in meteorology.

Yeh, a couple of years ago, everybody was misusing the term "Arctic vortex." That was just as annoying. No reason to over-dramatize the weather report. Just tell us what the best guess is for what we should expect and leave the sensationalism to the political commentators.

Last night around 10 we were at the Love's in Kankakee.

The TV news in there said there was snow and ice all over Illinois but I had just driven diagonally across the whole state and didn't encounter a single snowflake.

But they were showing old stock footage of cars and trucks in ditches and stuff.

Fake news even lies about current weather conditions now. 🙄

Now???? You just wake up an' crawl out from under yer rock Rip Van Winkle?
They've always lied about the forecast. They say it's going to rain tomorrow and it doesn't, but that was the first time I've seen them straight up lie and say 2/3rds of the state is covered with snow and ice RIGHT NOW and there are cars in ditches everywhere when there isn't.
