It's really amusing when the local weather forecasters get to predict snow for the area. They make it so ultra dramatic.."We are here in Bellingham where we saw a SNOWFLAKE! This could mean the roads will be icy in the morning so drive carefully tomorrow everyone. Watch for that dangerous BLACK ICE...we're all GONNA DIE." I'm sure the ratings go through the roof, I know the grocery stores are packed. People buy enough food to last a year after the first flake falls.
I love the snow, I hate to drive in it just like everyone else, but it's so pretty and quiet. At least for the first couple of days, after that it can go away. I say if you can't lick em...eat it!
