Stella turned up the heat, shuffled to the living room and flipped on the television in order to watch the morning news.

When it's this cold, that's all they want to talk about. Coldest winter in 100 years they say.

“It's this huge Arctic air mass that goes way over the North Pole as well. It's a really big dome of Siberian cold air and it's just not moving.”

Do people really want to be meteorologists?

“Baby, it's cold outside.”

They shouldn't let him sing. Is he trying out for some part in a play?

“Hoods were up and heads were down as the storm....”

No! Don't interview people on the street. They'll make some painfully lame comment about global warming.

“I am from New England, so I can't say I am not used to this kind of weather, but I am happy that we at least have the sun.”

Get to the road closures please. Aren't they supposed to give me traffic information every ten minutes?

“The pads on their paws can get frostbit very easily. The best way to go is to limit the time they are outside. Short walks are fine.”

Check. Keep Rover in. Don't they sell that indoor grass thing on late night TV? I wonder if dogs actually use that to relieve themselves. Maybe you could buy a mini fire hydrant to decorate it as well.

"Dress in layers, keep warm, don't stay out too long. If you don't have to go out, don't."

Alrighty. There's the common sense report for those without any. No, don't go to commercial break! They'll show some scantily-clad couple frolicking on a beach somewhere, waves rippling at their feet while the snow squeaks under ours.

“And now for traffic...”

Ahhh I love working from home. Now, I wonder if I should go out and grab a coffee.

I laughed so hard. The Midwest just experienced another storm and the weather reports were similar.

I always smile at the "100 year" weather extremes that seem to crop up every 10 years or so. :) Your global warming comment made me smile. :) This was very enjoyable.
