Good Morning. It’s Monday, 13 March 2017, and this is the Morning Edition of The Nightshift, the world’s overnight news feed.
A blizzard is bearing down on the East Coast of the United States. Winter Storm Stella is projected to drop between 10-16 inches of snow on New York, slightly less on Boston, Philadelphia, and Washington DC. Late season storms are not unusual but also bring with them a whole new set of problems, not the least of which is a mental attitude that may already be focusing on the warmer weather and different lifestyle of spring. There’ll be plenty of coverage, of course; when these types of storms arise, one of the best places to keep track is by watching The Weather Channel.
Yesterday was “Selection Sunday” as the NCAA picked the teams to compete in this year’s collegiate men’s national basketball championship. Few surprises: the brand names of the sport–Duke, Kansas, UCLA, UNC, Gonzaga–were in and a few surprises were out (Syracuse, Indiana). The madness starts this week with the first games on Tuesday. You can see (and print) the entire bracket at SI.Com.
Washington continues to be the reality TV show we can’t turn off; who knows what drama those guys will generate this week. One thing is guaranteed: it’s always unpredictable and not necessarily very effective.
Daylight Saving Time went into effect in much of the United States yesterday; a lot of people are not very happy with it( and still very sleepy). Perhaps it’s an idea that has outlived its’ time.
