Re: Cincinnati reaction to snow
My co-workers always comment on the amount of panic when it comes to snow in the Dayton area. I always tell them to be thankful they're in Dayton and not Cincinnati.
The panic gradiant in Ohio is very steep. In Cincy, snow is the coming of the Apocalypse. In Dayton, people equally rejoice and panic. North of Dayton, snow is only a minor inconvenience.
I remember one winter when Cincy cut off UC's supply of road salt because they'd apply two inches of salt for every inch of snow causing the city to run short. The entire campus was caked in salt until mid-April. You don't get that kind of hysterical overreaction north of I-275.
What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?
All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
