It was Historic for sure!
This “blizzard” we had was absolutely historic – and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
Historic because it set the all-time record for the highest “Hype vs. Reality” ratio! (A now distant second was Chicken Little’s “The Sky is Falling,” which held the record for nearly 200 years.)
Take a look at these EPIC photos!
It was (and is) still a storm!
This “weather event” was still significant in many ways. Snow storms (even pedestrian ones) do impact people’s lives in the short term, and this was quite a powerful storm (for some). It just snowed heavier in other parts of the northeast.
I guess this weather pattern was a bit too complex for our inferior technology to pinpoint precisely what would have happened in the future.
No one is to “blame”
While I find it humorous that the “Hype vs. Reality” ratio was so high, and always find the silver lining to situations like this (less snow is better for most) – I certainly feel no need to issue “blame” to anyone.
Why do people even use phrases like that when something like this happens “We blame those stupid meteorologists for getting it wrong! Burn them at the stakes!”
If anything – YOU are to blame for taking what those weather people say as gospel. How do you like them apples?
People should always be prepared for the circumstances that may take place in their neck of the woods.
- If you live near a body of water – have a flooding plan (evacuation, supplies, etc.)
- If you live in a cold climate – have your shovels, salt, fuel, etc.
- And no matter where you live – it’s never a bad idea to have a supply of essentials on hand at all times (food, medical, water). What’s so bad about that? Just rotate it over time to ensure freshness.
Another bonus is that a majority of the sheep believed the hype and are frozen with fear and submission. Have you seen the roads today? Almost post-apocalyptic!
