Snow, ice and potholes

Bill Ritter's daily take on the news.

How much is the crummy weather affecting people? Some otherwise intelligent folks are using the big snow totals - 40+ inches so far compared to 25 inches normally for the entire season - to wonder 'what happened to global warming now?'

Seems like a stretch to take the wide swath of cold this winter and claim that climate change isn't happening. But hey - everybody's got an opinion, right?

Meanwhile, it's winter, it's February, and we shouldn't be surprised by nasty weather - even if the planet is warming.

Are we in for another storm this weekend, or will it remain two small systems that will be more nuisance than calamity? Meteorologist Lee Goldberg is leading our weather coverage, tonight at 11.

Also at 11, the wild swingsof temperatures is causing parts of the tri-state to look like Beiruit at its worst. There are so many potholes it looks like explosives were intentionally set. And it's not a laughing matter - ruining your tires and/or rims in these potholes can cost hundreds. Jim Dolan braves the mean streets for us, at 11.

We'll also have any breaking news of the night, plus Rob Powers with the night's sports. I hope you can join Sade Baderinwa, tonight at 11.
