I just find the whole thing kind of ridiculous. When I was a young kid (5 to 7 years old), we had snowstorms, they dropped so much snow, I remember
making snow forts in drifts that were between 6 and 10 feet tall. I remember walking to school and getting stuck up to my chest and another kid in
high school pulling me out and he was waist deep in the white stuff. So what has happened here? Have we bred a bunch of sissies?
I go out driving when I have to in some of the worst storms with just snow tires on the car. I had to drive from Syracuse to Binghampton once for a
meeting in obscene blowing snow and high winds in the dark at less than 10 mph the whole way following behind trucks doing 10 mph and I was driving a
Firebird convertible (V8 and six speed stick of course), I think we know how light in the @ss end those things are and I still made it there and back.
People these days seem to get stupid when it snows, three inches means you better have food and supplies for a week or your pooched.
The Russians, Chinese and Al CIAeda must be laughing their @sses off at what they perceive to be the weak little Americans. I honestly have to say
that the deliberate demoralization of a populous over snow is aiding and abetting the terrorists, the mass media should be charged for providing
I am not sure if it is the fear driven advertising component to market more crap to people, or if something is about to go seriously amiss in the
government, meaning another "freedom/rights" grab. Or maybe it is just a forced acclimatization to make everyone feel helpless (through peer
pressure)so the ***nice*** government folks can sort everything out for us without too much public backlash.
I don't know the reason, but I do know something stinks about this like the BP fiasco, like the Obamanator fiasco, like the Climate Change fiasco and
like the Bailout fiasco [add your ***likes*** here]. Methinks something evil this way comes and it isn't snow.

PS. It wouldn't take a lot to kill the internet in the US, all they have to do is knock out Mae East or Mae West or their equivalent maingate hubs.
Actually, I think they would go for Mae East in Atlanta as that would kill the entire eastern coast and cripple communications between Atlanta and LA.
They don't even have to break it, all they have to do is say it's broken, the power went off and the gennies failed, oops, having a dictatorial
