Do not be afraid of the snow. It's getting so every time we have a snowstorm they try to scare us. We all have P.T.S.D. after Sandy. But for heaven's sake, a little snow, even a lot of snow, is normal. It is Winter after all.
And let's not lose sight of the fact that snow can be beautiful. Like angel's wings.
Snow is ethereal, fluffy and white.
And it's fun. While some of the sensationalist channels just wanted to show stranded cars, and talk gloom and doom, some very brave newscasters actualy showed kids playing in Central Park.
Global warming is a reality. And outtages are no fun. But let's face it. We have a grid set-up so a squirrel can take a bite out of a wire and a whole neighborhood is in the dark (this happened in a neighboring NJ town). And that has nothing do with any storm.
So loosen up folks. Don't forget snow is to be enjoyed. It is not a monster that will eat you up.
