Despite the premature hysteria ahead of Winter Storm Juno, New York City was not brought down to hell by the snowpocalypse. Everyone knows they goofed—NYC residents, meteorologists, and even Mayor Bill de Blasio.

While visiting the City Hall press corps today de Blasio did a "dramatic" reading of a story published yesterday by The Onion. The fake news story included end-of-days proclamations from the mayor, each of which de Blasio repeated in front of reporters. 

De Blasio displayed impressive senses of humor and self-awareness, but we do have one critique. The mayor could deeply benefit from improving his thespianic skills. His sense of drama matched that of an elementary schooler forced to perform in a play for participation points.
