2 feet of beautiful snow, especially when you can enjoy it at the start of a weekend is great FUN. 82 mph wind gusts... oh my, not much fun. Good time to huddle around the Ben Franklin.
While my heart goes out to all who are challenged by the snowfall, I sure wish we me more snow here. If it doesn't damage property, it sure is beautiful
This year's "storm of the century". It seems as though we have them more often than every century,
Difference between every storm on the East Coast and a storm in Minnesota (and I've lived in both places for several winters)? 90% of that snow out east will be melted away by Wednesday. Still a lot of inches at once, but c'mon, it's a 2-3 day event and then back to normal. My point is this doesn't necessarily deserve the nation's attention for the whole weekend. Isn't there anything more important happening out in the world?
If it happens "back East," it's a big deal. Even when it isn't a big deal.
When are they going to start requiring some of these places to put their utility lines underground and avoid these type of power issues? Sure it costs a lot more to bury a line but it seems like at least once a year large numbers of people in are without power. The last one just last fall with the hurricane that went through the same area.
