Snow hysteria

Last night every single local weatherperson went bananas with a prediction of 12 to 16 inches of snow coming in two waves of "the biggest snowstorm in eight years!" Instant mass hysteria. Me included: "Will they have to cancel the swim meet??" "What about the concert Sunday??!!" "DO WE HAVE ENOUGH GIRL SCOUT COOKIES AND WINE IN THE HOUSE TO SUSTAIN ME UNTIL WE CAN DIG OUT???!!"

We have our ears glued to the radio this morning listening for updates on the approaching blizzard. The forecast just went from 16 inches and probable school closings on Monday to "we're just updating the numbers as we watch how things progress" and "we're looking at a potential of anywhere from 4 to 6 inches by Monday."
