New York - From New Jersey to Maine, millions of people, many with Superstorm Sandy still fresh in their minds, dug out from underneath mounds of snow Saturday.

Many were left with serious consequences. Hundreds of thousands lost power, and on New York’s Long Island, abandoned cars littered the roadways, left by people who could not make it home Friday night as the storm intensified.

Others simply had a few inches to clear from their cars and sidewalks. But mostly, people soldiered on.

I can't understand the big tsimmis which is being made, regarding the non-stop coverage of this storm, and giving it names such as "monster blizzard". There were far worse storms in the past (i.e. the blizzard of 1888 which struck NYC, the blizzard of 1947, 1996, etc.). It is ludicrous for tv reporters to be outside (for the purpose of ratings), and show themselves exposed to the snow and wind). One would have thought that a gigantic tsunami struck the East Coast, with the non-stop reporting. The fact of the matter is that if a large blizzard strikes the Midwest, it only receives minimal coverage, as compared to one which strikes the East Coast.
