How come everytime it snows in NY it makes world news??

I swear everytime they get a possibility of now it's on World News

One would think NY is the only place that gets snow, but places like Washington, Colorado, places in California, Montana, and Dakota gets more snow, not only that but the system usually travels through places like Michigan, Indiana as well.

Is World News hardquartered in NY or something?

ABC, CBS and NBC are in NYC. CNN and Fox are there. Every major news service has a presence there. So, basically, yes, the worlds news services are there!

Well, it snowed in Podgorica.
Now that it is on TF, its world news.

Please change wrong Georgian and Montenegrin flags with correct ones: Georgia and Montenegro.

Because New Yorkers seem to think that anything that happens to them is news worthy. Talk about obnoxious.

For the past couple of winters, the east coast (NYC, Baltimore, DC) has been getting pounded with unusually high amounts of snow for them. It's rare for them to get over a foot of snow at a time, and it's been happening often.

Re: How come everytime it snows in NY it makes world news??

the second highest snowfall in one month since record keeping began is not exactly "everytime". 56.5 inches of snow in one month is not exactly a pittance so stop hating!

It's not us. No, really. It's the freaking network news that want to make a typical day in, oh, say, Buffalo, Green Bay or Minneapolis seem like doom 'n gloom. It's all done for dramatic effect and it works every (freaking) time b/c I get countless texts/calls/e-mails from fam and friends around the country e.g "are u OK?". I'm fine. On my driving days, I dig the car out. On my commuting days, the train's delayed. It happens to EVERYONE who lives in a cold climate BUT Today, GMA, CNN love to present winter in the NYC area as if it's the end of the world.
