Arlo & Janis (1/8/10)

Sometimes I think Chicago’s media outlets were launched for the sole purpose of hyping snowstorms. While it’s true that snow can be an inconvenience and even a safety hazard, the city’s news crews tend to treat light dustings as if they were terrorist attacks. I could understand the crisis-themed reporting if a few inches were slated for Houston or Atlanta, but Chicagoans are used to trudging through snow. We wake up in the morning, admire the scenery from the comfort of our homes, and then venture out into the world to stomp the virgin white blanket into a black, sludgy mess.
