VENTSday: Snow Stories + Cell Phones On Planes

Dec 11, 2013

How was your week in the snow and how do you feel about cell phone use on planes?

Our weekly ritual is renewed, as we throw a pair of topics on the table--in theory, unrelated--and open up the phone lines and the email box to gather your take on either or both of the issues.

Unusually deep snow and unusually low temperatures mean the snow is hanging around valley floors in the region.

The transportation system is coming back to full strength ever so slowly.

Now THAT'S a winter storm.

It may take much of the weekend for the region to dig out from Friday's snowfall.

Snow fell as far south as Mendocino County, snarling roads and causing numerous accidents.  School days, sporting events and stage shows were cancelled in response.
