Sn-overreacting, Part II

• At 1:43 p.m. Wednesday, the Freeman newsroom received a fax from the Ulster County Legislature that stated the following: "Chairman David B.Donaldson has determined that the safety and welfare of the public and members of the Ulster County Legislature may be compromised by the inclement weather and has announced the postponement of the Ulster County Legislature's meeting scheduled for 6 p.m. Wednesday, January 7, 2009." The weather outside when the fax arrived? Rain. The local roads? Just wet. Does that mean tonight's make-up meeting may be postponed, too? After all, it is pretty breezy outside right now.

• The recording at the Kingston school district's main phone number this morning stated "The Kingston school district is on a two-hour delay." My 14-year-old son, upon hearing this, suggested it be changed to "The Kingston school district is on a two-hour delay because of clear skies, clean roads and paranoia." I couldn't have said it better.
