Is there any reason that local news stations need to hype the wind? I mean, it was practically the same coverage they give a significant snowfall (which is also overhyped). They have a reporter on location near a flag so you can see the wind. If they really want to show the effects of the wind, they should send one of those female or male reporters who have hair that is so sprayed that it looks like it is carved out of wood.
