    Good heavens, assuming, and I do, that the nasty sounding aside was a result of tone deafness rather calculatedly snide, could the newsreader, or whoever was responsible for that piece, possibly have made a poorer word choice here: " . . . it was cancelled because of bad weather, [Well, at least she didn't say " . . . cancelled supposedly because of bad weather"] but as you can see there were no such EXCUSES today."

    A better choice? Let's see, how about: hinderance, difficulty, impediment; or perhaps something along these lines: nothing this time to forestall - - preempt / disallow / debar / preclude the possibility of / to thwart the attempted &c. In other words, the number of preferable alternatives to be found were, to say the least, abundant.
