After a impressively terrible 2014, Don Lemon starts off the year right by hopping in CNN's specially-equipped "Blizzardmobile" and reporting from the streets of New York. The one problem of course being that New York City's snow estimates were way off and nearly all of it is gone as of Tuesday morning.
Viewers noted that the Blizzardmobile was routinely passed by such anti-winter assault vehicles as the Toyota Prius and by all appearances was just a regular van. If only this had happened instead:

“It’s kind of ironic,” Overstock President Stormy Simon told The Huffington Post on Wednesday. Simon said someone approached her after Tuesday’s press conference to remind her of the 2013 article. She hadn’t remembered the story, but the president of The Onion texted her after Tuesday’s announcement. “It’s hysterical,” she said. “Reading it today, I thought, ‘This looks like a press release!'”

A homeowners’ association has filed a lawsuit seeking to bar a resident in the town of Manlius from parking his own pickup truck in his driveway.
The Kimry Moor Homeowners Association has filed a lawsuit against residents David and Arna Orlando in Onondaga County Supreme Court because they are parking their 2014 black Ford 150 pickup in their driveway at 511 Kimry Moor, just outside the village of Fayetteville.
The association wants an injunction to stop the couple from parking their pickup in the driveway of their home.
The association cites its regulations, which limits parking in driveways only to “private, passenger-type, pleasure automobiles,” according to the lawsuit. The association owns all the driveways in the development, according to court filings. The Orlandos could park their pickup in their garage, but not in their driveway.
