Schools are closed, businesses are shut down and traffic becomes a nightmare! All this for maybe 1/2" of snow. Don't get me wrong...I'm not saying I miss the 3 feet of snow and having to shovel your car out from after the snow plow comes by and buries it with heavy, packed down snow and ice which was recently scraped from the road. Sometimes it was so cold the locks on car door would be frozen! Of course we still had to drive to work in this mess and school was still in session. It could snow from October through April; no I don't miss that at all.
I just think it is comical the way that everyone panics around here whenever there is even the slight chance of snow!
