Community Issues

And We Thought The Cold Was Bad!

Morning snow showers are snarling traffic, testing nerves, and generally making everything a scary mess.

Here it is late morning and the offices at Sparkt are just beginning to come alive, hours later than a usual Friday morning. Our guess: it's the same all over Pittsburgh today.

Snow started falling just as the morning commute got underway, turning area roads into sledding ramps. Sparkt staffers are reporting travel times 2 to 3 times their usual duration.

We wish our workday might have been called off with the flair of some of these school officials . Then, again, we've heard Marty Griffin sing, so maybe not.

Snow will continue to fall throughout the early afternoon, according to the Weather Channel forecast , easing up in time to get some plows on the road ahead of the evening commute.

If you don't need to go out, we recommend snuggling up to your web browser and taking in some of these heartwarming stories on Sparkt:

Whatever you do today, we've got one simple message for you: Stay safe!
