Oh the weather outside is weather.
Remember that classic movie line? Well people need to start taking it more seriously. Guess what? It's going to snow in the winter. WHO CARES? Everywhere I have lived, every time even small amount of snow is predicted, people start acting like it's 2012 and Armageddon's happening in the morning. You think after YEARS and YEARS of snowfall during the wintertime, people would be fairly proficient in dealing with this phenomenon. But no, every year when it snows you've got people acting like it's the first time anything like this has ever happened. You've got people crowding the grocery stores and hardware stores, which leads me to ask: has anyone in this country outside of Alaska been snowed in their houses for more than a few days, to warrant stocking up on extra supplies? And I'm sorry, but if those poor theater workers and restaurant employees can get to work and face crowds of people bored out of their minds after being stuck inside on a snow day, then you probably could have gone to work, too.
PS: The TV news is dumb.
