I live in Texas where we don't get a lot of bad winter weather but it does happen pretty much at least once every winter.  I was trying to watch to national news this morning but no I can't do that.  Why?  Because the roads MIGHT get icy.  Give me a break!  I know some areas have iced over but really what more can be said other than what roads to avoid and what schools/business are closed.  Is there really a need to report from the side of the road telling us that the roads aren't icy but you did find some ice on the back of a sign?!?!  Give me a break.  Just report what is necessary and move on.  I don't need to hear from 3 different people in three different towns that there isn't any ice on the highway - how is that newsworthy??  OK vent over LMAO  Did I miss any good national news this morning?

Yea I know what you mean..What really gets me is when my major news channels have celebrity gossip..I remember watching the news about a month ago and kept hearing Madonna and A-Rod... If i want to read that ill pick up a tabloid!.

I totally understand! Last week or the week before can't remember which..snow was in the forecast..only for like 1-2inches..*I'm in VA*..so automatically it was a huge deal and schools shut down..and it didn't even snow!!!! They even had winter weather advisories telling people to stay off the roads!

Fox and Friends on Fox News Network etc... who needs a local station that reports weather and traffic every 8 minutes among each 3 minute of commercial segment. And if not on TV, check a internet newspaper site for the headlines.

Right now it's west of DFW but slowly moving east.  Most of the schools are closed around the Decatur area.  Fort Worth schools are open but they may close early and they said if you keep your kids at home it will be excused.  I live in East Texas so it won't be here until later this afternoon or tonight.
