It seems like were due for even another foot of snow tommorow...

 

 

Hope all you Northern guys are doing allright too and be carefull out there.....any interesting stories so far from the Blizzard of 2007

here's something i don't get. during hurricane season, the national media makes it seem like the areas getting hit are far away and make it a much bigger deal, like it's the end of the world, while in blizzards, it looks more like a local story that isn't really too much of a big deal and everyone will survive. can someone answer that question for me please? thank you.

 

but seriously, blizzards aren't fun. stay safe up there.

Having lived through Francis, Jeanne, etc. and two blizzards...hurricanes are worse because even with meticulous planning, you're losing power, perhaps even for weeks on end. Blizzards are destructive, deadly and power can be lost, but in a hurricane, it's going out for sure...and when power is out, there are myriad concerns for the very young and the very old.

The ice storm from two years ago was worse.

 

But, then again, it's also going to snow around here in Columbus UNTIL Monday.

The local news makes it look like "OMGSCARY!" but people live through it every year. It's not a big deal. I guarantee you, as bad as I've got it right now, it's 10 times worse in Wisconsin and those people don't even flinch.

I shoveled about about six inches of snow off my walkway last night. Then it rained. Apparently, where I shoveled, it filled up like a gully then froze on the top. So when I woke up, I was like "Great. Looks like I'll need the rock salt." But then I stepped out and the ice broke and water came pouring out.
