Cooper skimmed the tape from the Associated Press, preparing for his broadcast. He frowned. Wasn’t there good news when he started this job? Weather. He could depend on weather for something less than terror.
Winter storm continues
The winter storm continues, setting a new record for the longest number of days with sub-zero temperatures and blizzard conditions in the United States. Predictions have the northeast blanketed with another ten inches of snow by Monday.

Trump Must Testify.
