The main drag, Genesee Street, this morning. A familiar sight around here from around December to April. But as you can see, nobody pays much attention or stops what they're doing. In Richmond VA where my mother was born and where she returned later in life, people wrapped their tires in chains and worried about going to the drug store. And when a snow storm hit the east coast during Christmas a few weeks ago, the major networks made it their top story and gave it lots of air time. But every year when the clouds above drop foot after foot of snow on us, the networks could care less and our stalwart citizens dig out in silence.
