Thing is we used to cope with it fine here too until after 10 yrs or so without a good dumping and now the media exagerate beyond belief when a slight snow shower is on the way, that and a new generation of people who have forgotten what a good winter feels like & who cause everything to grind to a halt.
Its pathetic, i wish it would dump hard for a few weeks just to observe how much of a wake up call it would be to most.

I remember walking through two feet of snow as a kid.
The world didn't end.
Why are we all so suddenly scared of a little snow?
This will be made into more than it is. We'll see reports of people without power "for Hours!!!!" as if it's some sort of disaster.
People are becoming more pathetic with each passing day.
The outrageous reactions people have to this is more scary than a bit of snow. IMO.

What is the definition of a "sitx?" I have never heard the term, and my experience of snow is limited to a majority of my life being spent in Hawaii with the remainder in sunny New Mexico.
Thanks in advance.
