The sprawling storm rolliing through the Mid-Atlantic states is snarling traffic and leaving residents with little option than to spend the weekend at home, till warmer temperatures melt it away next week.
One aspect of news coverage of this storm is the drone's-eye view. News crews are launching their own eyes in the sky as is the public, all to show what's going on from a couple hundred feet or less.
It's a visual media and anything to make the storm more fun to watch is welcome. This is an easy and low cost way to jazz up the news.
