Local broadcasting stations like to crack jokes consistently about the cold weather and the conditions not being bad. Well, West Virginia thought that too until I nearly got killed!
This joking has got to stop during severe weather periods because people will eventually get injuried or killed thinking its no big deal. The media is supposed to be a good example not a bad example. I have skyspotted since 2004 for National Weather Service. Weather is not a joke when it gets dangerous!
