WHEN IS A STORM NOT A STORM?

Weathermen of Western New York, are you listening? A "storm in a teacup," according to Webster's dictionary, means "much to do about nothing." As usual, the weathermen got out their trumpets to herald in "the storm that wasn't." They toot their horns three or four days in advance and muster up as much theatrical drama as they can to tell the viewers that a "storm" or a "snow event" is on the way. Their need to compete TV station against TV station won't allow them to tell it like it is. Enough!

The people of Western New York know what a real storm is. Stop insulting our intelligence and tell the truth for a change. Real storms are few and far between. These weathermen are using the word "storm" to death, and in the process needlessly worrying a lot of people.
