I'm not saying that telly news types are desperate to jump on any easily-formed news bandwagon, but man am I sick of all this crap about the weather. There was a full INCH of snow in PARTS of the Midlands overnight and it warrants several minutes of conjecture about grit and vox pops with people who have been FORCED TO ABANDON their cars in the middle of roads in the middle of nowhere.
When people had to do that on the motorway and slept in their cars overnight - now that was fairly interesting. My tip would be, however, that when you get several days of the same thing happening it becomes harder to describe as 'news'. What today's local newscasts are essentially saying is 'IT'S WINTER! WINTERY THINGS BE HAPPENIN'!' - and this makes me want to throw the television out of the window. How rock and roll.
Only if I open the window, it is freezing outside.
