For the entire week of the “Winter Storm 2012” I have not once turned on the local TV station or listened to the radio. Ha, well, that was a joke. I don’t even know what a radio is anymore.

What’s fascinating is that being plugged in to the social world of Facebook and Twitter can give you a great sense of what is happening right now in your neighborhood and city. Further it gives you a great sense of community. You have a chance of connecting with your neighbors that are going through the same experience, which is one big factor in why people love watching local news during big weather events and other big newsworthy issues.

How did you stay up-to-date during the big storm last week?
