Snow Alert 2005 on Fox 5

Fox was ON IT last night. They had a ticker that updated with school closings every two minutes (which they told us about every two minutes), they had team coverage in all areas of the tri-state, covering the approaching disaster with their usual Fox flare; shots of snow plows from last year, shots of piles of salt, shots of wet roads and interviews with people buying shovels at Home Depot. My favorite though, was hunky, brow-y Jim Castillo, condemned to the streets of Chelsea. With next-to-no snow falling, Jim had the crew shoot his flashy black shoes, scuffling on the pavement, warning that it was "freezing up." Emmy, people. Emmy.

Below, the tragedy as it was before us when we woke.
