    Wiz isn't commenting on the EML overhead Friday?

    I will say the national media tends to do a terrible job discussing climate change but I think they’re making an effort to get better. I think that’s a different matter than ignoring a town that I wouldn’t be able to pick out on a map.

    Yet everyone's cool with the polar vortex stuff for days? Give me a break. I don't think there's any agenda besides a clear population/geographic bias and focusing on what's more impactful. I've seen ton of coverage of the atmospheric river events in SoCal.

    Take for instance us last February when it got to 77F. We had one reporter on warm weather and people enjoying the warmth. I did a sidebar about climate change and warmer days becoming more common in a warming world, etc. Fast forward to the day with record cold this year and we had 2 meteorologists on it and 3 reporters talking about pipes, cars, waterspouts, little johnny freezing at the bus stop, etc. There's no question that unusual winter cold gets far more media attention than winter warmth.

    I honestly think you're reading way too much into this. There have been tons of really epic warm patterns in the plains and upper midwest that have gotten little attention. If Great Falls, MT was +40 for the month no one would care just like no one cares that they're -40F. It's geographic bias.

    It's the media's focus on the coasts that's the issue here. Not loving warm over cold. I can guarantee you if NYC and BOS were putting up departures like that it would seem like end times on the media... particularly if it was cold.

    We're probably close to getting a bunch of power outages too. Pretty pasty.

    Looks like it's on the way in now. Probably good through 4 a.m.?
