Atlanta snow

(January 30, 2014)

I'm not sue if the BBC Arabic fixation on American snow storm is due to 1) pure concern; 2) a heathenish delight at others' misfortunes, and particularly American misfortunes; or 3) American weather is actually amongst the most news-worthy topics to choose from.

Here is footage shown of the ice storm that paralyzed Atlanta. All the focus was on the jammed highways; they didn't mention the kids that spent the night at schools or on school buses!
