Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — I know I seem bitter, but it is only because these people on television act like snow is this new thing they discover every winter. You want to know what else bugs me? Other parts of the state of New York are getting hammered by snow right now, as we speak. But we here in Western New York still have green grass. Where is the Weather Channel? Where is CNN reporting that Western New York is not buried in snow with the rest of New York State?
Everyone thinks it snows here all the time because that is what the media tells them. If the media were to tell the whole story, then maybe the rest of the world would not think we were such a wasteland.
I prefer to concentrate on the things that make the most of our wintery weather. I am looking forward to the Winter Wonderland on Market Street this holiday season. I have heard a lot of stories about what it is supposed to be like, and I am interested to see what actually happens.
I was checking out the plans in the paper for the upcoming holiday season and we have a lot of things to choose from around here. It looks like the Palace plans on being busy dishing out the holiday spirit this year. I could not make the Palace’s open house, so I am anxious to see what things look like now.
Let’s face it; there are some pretty spectacular Christmas light displays in the Lockport area. Each year, the wife and I like to cruise around Lockport and see what people have done to their homes. I wish I had the time and resources that some of these people seem to have. I would love to have my house be that house on the block that people look forward to every Christmas.
