    I mean is this overkill right now and a reason for officials to pat themselves in the back? It's a fucking snow storm not Godzilla! I mean one muli female on nbc ny news said it would be the worst in history! Will they all look like assholes tommorow for exaggerating and scaring everyone or will I for this post?

    Remember that these are the very people who think their very existence is destroying the planet through global warming.

    You should see how ridiculous the media coverage is out here when we get 2 inches of rain: STORM WATCH (insert year here)

    Granted, people here drive like shit when it barely sprinkles and when the time changes, but these news reports make it sound like the first time water has ever fallen out of the sky.

    Wishing everyone in the storm safety! I don't know how you deal with it. I'd last about 2 hours in a blizzard. Shit, I wouldn't even stick around for it - my anxiety would kick in full gear & I would likely have a grabber.

    Global Warming has led to winter snowfall which has led to higher temperatures.

    See, I reasoned it out and now you must agree.

    They burrow into the ground & go dormant until the coast is all clear

    Groundhog Day is coming on February 2nd. Groundhogs burrow and come up when the coast is clear. February is Black History Month. Your logic makes sense.

    My rule of thumb is whenever the media declares a storm to be a really big one, I always take their snow fall estimates and reduce them by 6 inches. I am right far more often then they are. Major winter storms are huge ratings getters.

    I also think all the supermarket organizations get together and pay the media to hype these storms. I swear people run to the market and buy three weeks worth of supplies every time a snow storm comes. Like they are going to be trapped in their homes for weeks.

    Couldn't agree more. It has to be real doesn't it? We can't stop a tornado, divert a hurricane, or make it ran in the desert. I would assume we spent too much of effort on HEATING UP THE FUCKING PLANET.

    Your reason leads to my agreement.
