Photo Story: The Weatherman Gets It Wrong Again

Image of a few tiny trees in the drifted snow.He is needed at the station because of the impending snowstorm and his wife just rolls her eyes again. “It’s gonna snow. They need you to tell everyone that?” He adjusts his tie in the bathroom mirror, making sure it doesn’t sag like his cheeks. He tells her this is important, he is important, that he can save lives by telling everyone how many inches to expect, where to go if the power goes out, how to shelter in place, and when he leaves, he wonders if she will tune in, listen to him, and prepare for the coming storm.
