OK, did that scare you enough?  No?  How about if NBC4 chief meteorologist Bob Ryan describes the impending storm as "crippling"?  That ought to do the trick. (NBC Washington)

JACKS GETS 120 YEARS
A Washington, D.C., woman who was convicted of killing her four daughters has been sentenced to 120 years in prison.

GOOGLE TO GOBBLE YELP
Google and Yelp are believed to have been in talks for a couple of months and, though no deal has been done, apparently a price has been named.
