Plus, TWC has seriously jumped the shark.
Once upon a time, they used to actually do weather, now they do overly indulgent self-promotion and so-called reality TV.
Dear Lord... Can I just agree with this? I don't get TWC anymore but my parents do. I SWEAR by all that is holy that every time I go over there (once a week), they are showing people digging up crystals, gems, rocks, etc. for at least the last 6 weeks. Not one bit of weather to be had on The Weather Channel.... Who would have thunk?
A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky dangerous animals and you know it. Fifteen hundred years ago everybody knew the Earth was the center of the universe. Five hundred years ago, everybody knew the Earth was flat, and fifteen minutes ago, you knew that humans were alone on this planet. Imagine what you'll know tomorrow....MIB
It is a perfect example of what has happened here. Although Atlanta may not get snow or the other southern states is it not like it whipped up in 2 hours. There were DAYS to prepare. Like Katrina. Except here the Governor and Mayors all told residents what to do and how to prepare.
No power means no cell phone chargers...no computers...no iPads...then people will worry about food and getting to work. In that order. Hell, most people cannot make a pot of coffee now let alone bake bread. Sorry, this Snowmegeddon is just hype so no one looks into Obamacare, Iran moving warships, Snowden releasing more documents, the US declaring that they will do drone strikes based on cell numbers/towers and more and more and more. All the while the POTUS hosts a 5 million dollar dinner for a foreign dignitary.
Take care of your own, your family and have a plan. There is NO reason for these types of actions except that we are lazy ass americans....
I really wonder what foods they were fighting over.
With the electric grid down, and can see a run on, cash (bank run), gasoline and bottled drinking water, along with some basic foods. I'd like to know what disappeared off the shelves first to help with a prep list.
Of course, I've weathered many a winter storm here in the woods and most stores around here have back-up generators. It also helps that we live on the boarder of two different grid systems (one hydro grid and the other coal plants) so we have a choice of a few towns to do a run on. Although I don't have a snowmobile, that would get you where you needed to go as it's legal on the road sides here.
