News chase: the stories we’re covering today

    Snowed in? It’s an excellent excuse to spend your day listening to WHYY and clicking around on NewsWorks.

    Here are the stories we’re chasing today:

    The word of the day today is: snow.

    We’ll have a report on the Mayor’s morning press conference about snow removal, a report on how tough it is to be ‘green’ while removing snow, the latest on NJ’s battle with the white stuff, a man-on-the-street perspective of those out in the elements and, finally, the answers you’ve been waiting for about thundersnow. Like, what in the heck IS it, anyway?

    We will do some reporting about things unrelated to the weather, too — because the world goes on after a storm.

    Meggan Kole takes a look at the relative cleanliness of coal, and Tom McDonald reports on City Council and on labor wars at the Convention Center.

    Elizabeth Fiedler reports on the property tax increases in Camden, and Peter Crimmins tells the story of a family-run business that’s making the grade in a tough economy.

    But we know you’re still thinking about thundersnow.
