This post which is meant to entertain, is dedicated to my mother who I love and adore but who thinks she is the “weather whisperer” and thrives on breaking weather news including daily calls to inform me of the weather in my neck of the woods for the next two weeks.? And to my eldest son and husband who are the ultimate weather skeptics (and are generally more right than wrong)…. Hi there, don’t mind me maybe I am just delirious from having a dose of cabin fever, or just ate too much of my beef bourguignon, or maybe both:) I simply couldn’t help myself with this post, lol. Promise after a good nights rest, (now that I know the world is not ending) I will be back with my pretty and inspiring posts:) This is a departure from my usual posts but one I have always wanted to do. Yes,? it is about the weather and yes we did “brave” a big snow storm last night, and hey I am alive to talk about it (totally said tongue in cheek) though to hear it from the weather people you would have thought my odds of “making it” out alive were 50/50! Which brings me to this silly,? fun and “I bet you will relate” post. The weather people. Yes those overly dramatic weather people. Getting worse with each storm if you ask me. In an age where every ounce of news from a slightly deflated football to a Kardashian sighting? is considered “breaking news” or a “developing breaking news story”. Seriously it has gotten downright comical. I always imagine that those in other countries must look at our media and just laugh themselves silly. The weather people are not immune from this, they are by far possibly the worst offenders. In the last 48 hours I have heard words never heard before-?? “snowpocolypse”, “snowmageddon”,”historic worst storm ever”, “catastrophic storm” and I kid you not, even the word “blizzardmobile”! I even caught the reporters from CNN driving down the desolate streets of NYC last night doing “investigative research”? in their blizzardmobile. Yes, the very streets that the “regular people” were banned from being on after 11, but the weather people are special and apparently invincible. So, doubting that you need proof and am assuming many or maybe most of you are nodding your heads in agreement….let me just for fun,? offer a few demonstrations. All in the name of entertainment of course:) You must take the time to watch these…they are truly hilarious! This about the “arctic chill” that swept over California… http://https://www.youtube.com/watch?x-yt-cl=84838260&x-yt-ts=1422327029&feature=player_embedded&v=72mvm0tx_28 You must hear her rant and doomsday forecast http://https://www.youtube.com/watch?x-yt-ts=1422327029&feature=player_detailpage&x-yt-cl=84838260&v=WxPIYPTPbe4 This forecaster sounds like he has lost a few marbles (or hailstones) https://www.youtube.com/watch?x-yt-cl=84838260&feature=player_detailpage&x-yt-ts=1422327029&v=xxikGseXnY8 This guy is the epitome of waht I am talking about…..how is it he is getting blown all over the place yet all the regular pedestrians are strolling along as it if it’s a normal day…inquiring minds want to know:) https://www.youtube.com/watch?x-yt-ts=1422327029&feature=player_detailpage&x-yt-cl=84838260&v=kohxJwcUAFA Overly dramatic much? http://https://www.youtube.com/watch?x-yt-cl=84838260&feature=player_detailpage&x-yt-ts=1422327029&v=rtjb9H1zKDU He leaves me speechless…. http://https://www.youtube.com/watch?x-yt-cl=84838260&feature=player_detailpage&x-yt-ts=1422327029&v=EsXOcfbZ_SM Think the snow plowers let him know what they think of dramatic weather reporters…. https://www.youtube.com/watch?x-yt-ts=1422327029&feature=player_embedded&x-yt-cl=84838260&v=gD-NoOQMF1c Jon Stewart is hilarious in this… http://https://www.youtube.com/watch?x-yt-cl=84838260&feature=player_detailpage&x-yt-ts=1422327029&v=tZS5OO-fkBY And a few images, consider this exhibit B. They certainly get an A+ for dramatics and really entertained me these last 48 hours…..think they practice these poses in front the mirror first? And my final presentation is the hysterical reaction to the absurd CNN “blizzardmobile”( actually thought it was a joke when I first saw the blizzardmobile) and the truly entertaining twitter messages that followed…..this really sums it all up! https://www.youtube.com/watch?x-yt-cl=84838260&feature=player_embedded&x-yt-ts=1422327029&v=8_n1TLVFXbw And some of the entertaining Twitter messages- anny Sullivan????????? @dannysullivan CNN’s Blizzardmobile. Or as regular people call it, a car. #blizzardof2015 Kathleen Madigan????????? @kathleenmadigan No one has told Don Lemon that the storm has been downgraded. For all of our sake, someone text him. #blizzardof2015 ?Mike Birbiglia????????? @birbigs Gotta be a strange feeling when you’re driving in your weird, dimly lit “Blizzard Mobile” and realize it’s only gonna be a foot of snow. Matt Ford????????? @fordm ?????????????????????????? Is the Blizzardmobile an emergency vehicle, and if not, can Don Lemon be arrested for driving right now? Hope I gave you an evening chuckle. I do not mean in any way to take away from the job that they do and do for the most part, very well.? Nor the seriousness of the weather, this is really all about the dramatics of the weather crew and dramatic they are indeed! I think just coming off the heels of this 48 hour non stop barrage of “breaking news” weather reports, the constant calls from our local authorities with their automated “doomsday” messages,? then witnessing arguments over food and lost places in line at the local market…it was just too much. Yes it was a huge snow storm, and yes there were winds but no it wasn’t the end of the world. And guess what? We all made it:) So would love hear to hear your say on the matter, do you agree it is overly dramatic? And I surely clump in the general news as well….I feel like there isn’t a story out there that isn’t breaking news these days. It has gotten to the point of ridiculousness. Oh well, let me get off this tangent, I feel better already. Now excuse me while I go and help myself to my third helping of beef bourguignon of the day and admire the glistening snow out yonder…… Until next time!
