Oh please...What is up with these people? Im looking out my Massachusetts window right now...Color me unimpressed so far.
Here in Illinois/Wisconsin we heard snowmageddon thrown about, for what wouond up being a nasty batch of wintry mix (IL) and 16" of pwedy stuff, gracefully delivered (southern WI).
Hey folks. It's Wisconsin. It's winter. In the old days we called it a snow storm, and people prepared (chains, studded tires in the NE, stay at home, take your chances).
I lived in CT in my youth, and the ice storm in the early '70s (73?), the real deal in '78, a barrage of mid sized storms one after the other in '93-'94, all exceed most of what we had in recent years.
I think it is all about ratings, to get people to watch local news and weather stations, with their 4D-Meta-Doppler forecasts. The newspapers will find a big drift for the photo, and a story about an 80 year old who had a heart attack in her home and couldn't get help. Good grief, Buffalo gets this every year. It is New England; snow is no stranger to the Yankee.

Buffalo gets all the bad publicity. Try lining in the snow belt.
I’ve seen it come down 5 inches an hour in Oswego County and it never made the national news.
