Severe Weather Ceremony Cancelled Due to Severe Weather

Our headline is a real headline from the weather network today.  It appears that in Topeka, Kansas a "severe weather ceremony" was canceled due to freezing rain and ice.  The proclamation to be signed was about the importance of severe weather preparedness.

The Weather Network was having some fun. What about the headlines at the side. Here's the link:

Your forecast:  Sunny, chance of 100-km-swath of butterflies

(From October 2017:  "After putting out the call for help from birdwatchers on Twitter, the curious forecasters were able to determine the cause of the signal - a swath of Painted Lady butterflies some 110 km wide, spanning the entire width of Arapahoe County, east of Denver".)
