the storm. and the snow is coming down, this is a serious storm, officials are warning everyone to take a snow day. the governor of new jersey, chris christie ordered all nonessential employees to take a snow day. schools are closed for a snow day. they're reporting multiple accidents. scores of accidents all over the road from people, uh-oh, getting hit by a plow. >> cover in snow before you brush the snow off. like a hideout or a cave. >> there are accidents all over the roads from people who had unsympathetic bosses. >> this is a great example for your kids, slacking off in a -- what is that a slanket? >> how about your employees? >> some of them came to work some, can work from home. >> give them a snow day? >> no snow days. >> i'm interviewing the wrong guy here. >> no plow. no snow day for him. >> and you're off because you

12:47 am
is that a possibility? >> it is. i asked the president of the recording academy about this last night at an event here in los angeles. neil, who is from long island, and he made it very clear that they're trying to bring the grammys back to new york city. >> we've said publicly we would love to be in new york, and we are working on plans to try to do that. >> i guess the big question is will they be at barclay's or madison square garden, regardless, he didn't have anything to confirm last night but did say they're trying to come back east. that's cool. >> the grammys are my favorite. oscars, i never watched the movie, you are constantly listening to the radio, the music is relevant. i'm hoping for socially conscious speeches that are addressing the things that people are worried about right now. >> sounds like everyone is interested in the politics of it more than the music. >> look, we want moments we can tweet about. we want the viral moments and the grammys are going for the
12:48 am
moments too because ratings have been down the past few years. probably going for that as well. >> ralphie, you are with us tomorrow from thesterster, and i can't wait. man, seriously, make your bed for tomorrow's show, will you? geez. >> as long as i'm not on camera tomorrow, that's not. >> ralphie, talk to you tomorrow. >> where is your grammy? >> what? >> where is your grammy? >> thank the police. ♪. >> sheryl has an immaculate eye for fashion and accolades speak for themselves. >> when i came into the fashion industry, it was a completely different time. it was rare to see black women at the mantle. >> pop on sun

>> and, of course, they're --

12:52 am
>> i eat meat. >> i eat meat. >> it's like the interstitials write themselves. >> there he is. >> this is the guy you're looking for in a situation like this. the neighbor with the snow blower. now the key is to make it look like you're struggling as much as possible while shoveling in order to get the neighbor with the snow blower to come by and do your walk. ugh! ugh! ugh! >> i'm out here chasing what is new jersey's version of the dakota access pipeline controversy, a raging battle over a plan to build a pipeline. much of it protected forest. i read hundreds of stories on this but wanted to hear from the folks who live right along
12:53 am
the route. >> anybody home? >> i'm taking a walk about. 22 miles along the pipeline route. this is day two of my story, walking the route, and running into a paradox i didn't think i'd find. people see a gas line coming through, and we want some of that gas. >> just by talking to people in the community, you know, we wish we had the gas. it's a lot cheaper to heat with. >> if you don't live in a rural area, you take natural gas for granted. i ran into people heating their home on oil, even coal, i ran into somebody who thinks he can tap into the line once it's built. here's the catch. the pipeline is not for them. no stupe for you. the gas is for the power plant providing electricity to area residents and dubbed by the environmental protection the dirtiest plant in the state. burns coal and oil and will
12:54 am
likely close if it isn't able to convert to natural gas. do you support it? it's coming right by the front door here. >> we can't gas. it's not helping our public here. >> the hope they can get gas is fueling support for the pipeline among the residents i'm talking to. that guy osborne was a perfect example of what environmentalists are talking about here. it is only used for the electrical generating station. he wants to hook his gas line up to it. once the pipeline is here, people are going to want to hook up to it, people want to hook up gas lines, businesses, houses and developers who will come in, start paving over the pine. and what would that mean for places like this? this shiloh farms, stumbled along the place along my walk. and wow, what a little slice
12:55 am
of paradise. >> could be worse. like i stepped into a time warp, man. old, old canoe up here, and the stalls. the old sleigh, look at this. >> a lot of locals like the owner of this farm have no problem with the pipeline coming through. the pipeline meets development like the critics suggest, it's going to be a very different place. ♪. >> tomorrow, i continue my journey, the third and final day of my walk along the pinelands pipeline. >> throughout black history month i will be honoring pioneers and i'm glad to start with fashion expert sheryl ann
12:56 am
waddlington, just by the way she carries herself and dresses to the nines and speaks, you can tell she strives for perfection in everything she does. >> i have some very intense training to be the best, you know? back then, you couldn't get away with what these kids get away with today, and one thing i would say to young people now, you want to get to the point where your mistakes are correct. >> sheryl has immaculate eye for fashion and accolades speak for themselves. she's contributed to numerous fashion houses and publications including "vogue" and "elle" and sharpening their look through consultants. she has been to countless fashion weeks. i knew when i interviewed her, i needed to dress to impress, and she showed me a thing or two how i could up my style. >> maybe pop on sunglasses on that. some people say if it's
12:57 am
nighttime, you don't need to wear it. it's a lie. >> sheryl will say making a name for herself in the fashion world wasn't easy, especially being a woman of color. >> when i came in, it was a different time, way before naomi campbell and tyra banks. it was rare to see a black woman at the mantle of anything fashion. i remember when the insiders called for a woman nondescript, meaning you couldn't tell if she was black or white. so i never paid that no mind. reporter: sheryl started the program that emphasizes academics and she makes sure that these girls have the foundation to achieve success. >> the goal of this program is to make sure that marginalized girls of color finish high school in time and get in
12:58 am
college, and so far, 1,200 girls have graduated from the program over the past 12 years, and so i could be proud of anything, i'm so happy about that. >> her work honored and highlighted by the white house, and guess what? she is far from done. >> programs like are this so important, too. if you want to break the cycle of incarceration and things like that, they need mentors and the work she sounds like she's doing is amazing and going to change society. >> it's not even people that could possibly be incarcerated. it's people that can be better than they already are in their field, and i have to say it's a reminder that if you have talents and can give back to others use that gift to empower the next generation. >> another great night of chasing. hope you enjoyed the show. appreciate you watctctctctc
