Perfect For A Snow Day Stations

A top forecaster is looking to make amends after predictions of a blizzard of epic proportions didn't amount to much in New York, New Jersey and Philadelphia.  Gary Szatkowski with the National Weather Service offered a heartfelt apology on Twitter earlier today. 

Cities in the path of what was supposed to be a monstrous blizzard devoted a huge amount of resources to preparation and implemented large-scale travel bans.  Szatkowski said officials made a lot of tough decisions expecting the National Weather Service to get it right, and they didn't.  

In Massachusetts however, Blizzard conditions hit hard and Boston is still on track to see two feet of snow today.  Governor Charlie Baker is calling the blizzard hitting the region "relentless" and says there are thousands of power outages in his state.
