Pick of the Day: The best weather story ever


Yet another snow storm is coming, which means—yes, you guessed it—another round of weather stories we’ll be preparing for you here at The Post. We’ll chronicle the precipitation accumulation, the traffic, the road plows, the power outages. If the reporting is good, there will be comprehensive coverage of how the weather impacts the region, from school closings to, God forbid, death and injury. But if the reporting is really good, there will also be a touch of descriptive detail, and perhaps even a moment keenly observed. While many in the news business deride weather stories, I’ve always thought they were opportunities to write about something that touches everyone. And so here on the eve of the storm, I present what I consider The Best Weather Story Ever Written.
