I’m going to rant for a few minutes, so bear with me…
First of all, if you live in New York, New Jersey, or the Northeast, guess what, we’re going to get snow. How do I know? Because I’ve lived here my entire life. Get over it. If you can’t handle the snow, get out of the northern part of the United States. If you are shocked every time the weatherman (who, by the way, doesn’t know what he/she’s talking about 95-percent of the time) says that there is going to be snow, get over it, or get out.
Speaking of the weatherman, don’t buy into all the B.S. they put on the television. They take dramatic clips from different events, compile the clips, and act like The Day After Tomorrow is doing to happen to scare you into stocking up on canned goods and water. The reality is, we’re going to get maybe a foot of snow. If we get more, GET USED TO IT! It is what it is. It’s the northeast.
I know this sounds harsh, but driving scared, or being scared of snow is absolutely ridiculous. You choose where you live, for the most part. Can’t handle it, move south or west. If you’re not comfortable driving in the snow, stay at home because YOU are the ones causing the accidents. YOU are the ones that are messing everything up for everyone else. Has there ever been a time when it hasn’t snowed up here? Not that I can recall. So sack up, or ship out.
If I hear one more person complain about the weather, I might just lose it. Want to hear about terrible weather? How about LITERALLY being snowed into your own house. Not because you’re too lazy to shovel the foot-and-a-half of snow on your side-walk, but because there’s three to four feet of snow blocking all your doors and you can’t get out of the house. Yea, that’s happened to my family and I in upstate, New York. Guess what, we survived. How about not having schools close when all the roads are ice, and driving to school at mph, spinning out a bunch of times, and then getting detention for being late. Yea, that’s happened to me, and I am completely fine. Now-a-days, snow is mentioned, and what do we do? We close all the schools, some major highways (really?), and most of the businesses in the area before anything actually happens. I can’t…
What’s the saying? If you can’t stand the heat get out of the kitchen. How about, if you can’t stand the snow/cold, get the F out of my town.
End of rant, if I offended you, then chances are, I’m talking about you. Sorry, not sorry.
