I get that the real issue is the wind that took down power lines and left a lot of people out of power, but I find it truly sad that people have supposedly died due to 3' of snow. I also find it odd that areas in the North East aren't prepared and used to snow storms.
3' is nothing for many places in this country. Hell, the winter before I moved from S.W. Michigan to NoVa, 3' of fresh snow happened several times.
Well, good luck to ya'll diggin your way out.
We are prepared for this. Thats why less than 24 hours later the roads are open and its basically business as usual.
Its not like the south where you get a freak storm that drops a few inches and your ****s shut down for a week.
