Then again; i watch the news and see catastrophic accidents when they have 3 inches of snow in Tennessee.
I guess i'm used to it.

I'd like to be in the BVI too.
No it is NOT a calamity. People forget very quickly how we spend 5 months in winter. The news media is all about HYPE and SCARE TACTICS, that's what they do..

To me this is simple, it snows we move it around with plows, shovels and snow blowers, end of story. I'll be amazed if we get 7" based on my 3:1 theory about the news media they claim 21" that means 7", they claim 50 knot winds and that means 17 knots......

OMG I'm off to buy batteries, milk and power outage supplies... Yeah right...... When did we become a nation of Chicken Little's?
