We speak to Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) as he prepares to leave office after four years at the helm.
It’s being called “potentially historic” and quite possibly “the most memorable on record,” but for many weather-wary Washingtonians, this week’s pending snowstorm is eliciting groans about over-hyped winter weather. While some recent storms have lived up to the bluster — remember Snowmageddon in 2010? — others such as the 2013 “Snowquester” fizzled, leaving cooped-up kids, frustrated workers and streams of rage tweets. But for local governments, medical facilities and schools, the penchant to panic is a good one. We find out why overhyping winter weather can be a good thing, and how it helps communities stay safe.
