Entry: "Let it snow, let it snow...."

We just had what some here refer to as our first "significant" snowfall of the season. To some, “significant snowfall" means anywhere from 2-5 inches. To me, “significant” snowfall is 6 inches and beyond. I remember back in the day growing up in the country in western Pennsylvania, now back then we had some SIGNIFICANT snow. Now-a-days, let the weatherman mention “Our latest satellite indicators shows a slight predisposition towards favorable atmospheric conditions that may initiate moisture initiatives capable of inducing a snow occurrence in the upper levels of the troposphere that may impact your local weather conditions…” and all of a sudden folk lose their minds and rush out to the market to “stock-up” as if there is going to be a nuclear holocaust or something. They frenzy-shop as if they will be snowed in and house-bound for weeks...LOL! Then all the T.V. stations go on 24/7 “LIVE Snow TEAM INSTANT WEATHER Coverage”, constantly “We are broadcasting to you "LIVE INTANT ON-THE-SPOT-RIGHT FROM YOUR BACKYARD EYE-TO-EYE WEATHER TEAM COVERAGE” available exclusively AND ONLY here on CHANNEL blah.blah.blah….” Why do they torture us so? I can see it’s snowing when I look out my window, I know how cold it is when I stick my butt out the door, just tell me how deep it’s supposed to get and how long it’s supposed to stay cold, and I’ll be good to go! I don’t need to be constantly reminded every few minutes that it’s snowing or snowed already, or might snow again sometime in the future..

*splashing water on face*

OK, how y’all doing?

Hi Greggy,
Yep, I saw all that snow on the news. Being from NJ originally I can certainly relate. It's cool if you have nothing to do all week, but most of the time you have to go to work so it's like "oh well, use another sick day". They know the deal. Anyway, it's been nice in FL. 50 at night & 75 day. That's why I don't live in NJ anymore, lol. Fo' Sho'!! Take care & stay warm. cool eh?
