    White Death ver 2009.1

    So here in good ole Cincy, we're expecting 1-3 inches of snow in the next 24 hours.

    It's December. It's the Midwest. Snow happens.

    So of course all the news stations have the obligatory "LIVE!!!!" reporters at the salt pile, an interstate, etc.

    Tickers at the bottom of the screen alert parents that ABC day care is already closed the rest of the week.

    Bosses round the globe are sending mass emails to employees reminding them that if they do not choose to brave the frozen tundra and make it in tomorrow, then we will be charged vacation days on a two-for-one basis.

    Meanwhile SWAT teams are being stationed at every Kroger's to fend off the evil grandmas in their quest to snatch the very last box of granola.

    Enough of the madness already! C'mon, spring.

    I grew up north of Dayton. I also lived in Cincy for five years. The distance between those locations is less than 70 miles. Yet for all the hysteria on Cincy's part, my hometown had very little of it. I always found that really interesting.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    The responses in this thread have been slow. I can only assume that the blizzard has knocked out the internets.

    The snow is really coming down here in Indiana.

    I just went to my mailbox and was barely able to find my way back to the front door.

    In Dayton - there's nothing here. Just wind.

    We've probably got an inch or two on the ground. Nothing major, but it did come down at a good enough clip to get the streets slippery.

    Of course, people are idiots and can't drive in even a small amount of snow. Artimis is reporting 12 accidents on the highways right now. The problem with snow here isn't the snow itself but rather the idiots who seemingly forget how to drive in it. Light to moderate snow really isn't all that difficult to drive in if people would use just a fraction of common sense.

    So gunning the gas while making turns and slamming on the brakes when the wind blows isn't a good idea?

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    Key words being "common sense". Some folks seem to lose their mind when it's snowing.

    One day last winter, I got passed on an icy road by a knucklehead in a small pickup. Less than a mile up the road I saw him in a field where he lost control (duh, it's ice) and slid off the road, tearing up a section of fence.

    'Bout the same here in Atlanta.

    I, however, do not miss cold. Or snow. Or ice.
