John,
Being where you are from, you know cold. Here in the upper midwest - likewise. What really made me laugh was how the recent cold spell along the east coast made the lead story in all the national network newscasts. It only got down around zero in New York City and Boston and they acted like it was the onset of another ice age.

Must have been a real slow news day!

It is just that the strip of coastline from Boston to Washinton DC is so self absorbed, that they really have no clue as to what is going on in the rest of the country. It is only cold if they are cold, it's only a drought if they are dry, and for whatever reason, Michael Jackson's activities are more important than, world peace, world hunger, war anywhere, etc. Bunch of clowns running the news! I'm on the fringe of that coastal strip, but my TV all comes from there. Can't get decent news anywhere except the internet.

That is one of the most accurate descriptions I have heard. I have never thought about it like that- but you are exactly right!
