Has the Snow Threat Been Under-reported?

It's 1 a.m. on Sunday, March 1 and for the last 10 or 11 hours, I've been combing the wires, looking at news web sites looking for evidence that the Alabama media are getting excited about the forecast for snow.

In the early evening newscasts, most of the Birmingham media were leading with tornado damage from East Alabama.

Maybe we've all gotten geared up for snow too many times and it doesn't happen here.

Within the last hour, the most-watched, trusted, well-known weather personality in the state, James Spann of Birmingham's ABC affiliate WBMA-TV, did his first cut-in on TV.

I'm excited about what he's doing on his blog with this coverage.

And, this will be first winter weather event where TWITTER will be in use.

It will be interesting to see how this all plays out over the next 12 hours.
