Blizzard 2010

On Tuesday the local media was going crazy with warnings for a blizzard set to hit around 6:00 pm that night, and lasting well into Wednesday. There was way too much media coverage, and so many warnings, that it sent people into a panic. Everyone jumped the gun and a lot of businesses closed around 3:00 pm for the day. All but one school district cancelled classes for Wednesday, our school included. On the news it showed people flocking to places like Home Depot and the grocery store to stock up on water and batteries. It started snowing around 6:00 pm that night, as scheduled. The problem is it only snowed about 2" and it was done. Business and schools closed down for nothing. I had a couple of appointments to go to on Wednesday that I had to find a babysitter for since my kids were home. I went to Home Depot on Wednesday and you should have seen the line for everyone returning their generators. It totally cracked me up! It always amazes me how panicky people get over nothing. Last Sunday when we got 10" of snow in the valley, the weathermen had called for a "chance of snow." Now, those are the storms you have to watch out for!

This was early Wednesday morning when the storm was supposed to be going strong. Boy, looks dangerous!
