Oh, yeah! That is why we are having the "weather," LOL. I guess this means a chilly, soggy walk w/ Miss Scarlett this evening . . .

My parents do not have a warning where they live; neither does my sister; neither does my best friend. So the only chance they have of even KNOWING about a warning is A. if someone calls them B. if they happen to have their TV on or C. if they have a weather radio.

There are literally hundreds of thousands of citizens in this region who have no sirens and so . . . if the meterologists do not come on TV and explain the urgency of the situation, people simply will not know what is going on.

Maybe you will have the chance to see what it is like here when the power is off for five or more days in the middle of the winter, since you seem to think everyone over-reacts here.

When it comes to flooding rain and tornadoes, and severe thunderstorms, you can NEVER be warned enough. I think they do a heck of a job here with the coverage. HOWEVER, when it comes to snow??????? EXAGGERATION CITY....Its more a HOPE than a forecast. They never seem to get it right because the thought of snow gets eveyone either excited, or freaked out. Snow forecasting here in Charlotte is poor to pathetic, severe weather reporting is very very good.

Having lived in western new york during the blizard of 77 we had alot worse storms there as opposed to what I see here. Just my observation.
Wow! How much lawn furniture do you have to get your undies all tied up in a knot? I live in NY and I'm here to tell you that I would rather move lawn furniture around than shovel 3 feet of shinow. (SP?)

Arriving in CLT tomorrow and hope Delta can find the airport.
LOL at lifes' priorities.

We'll have the runway lit for you, Johne, so FEAR NOT! Nasty weather will have dissipated by the time you get here . . . bring a sweater in case it gets a bit chilly, LOL.

Let us know when you get here and have time to check in.

Snow isn't the problem - ice is.

Just grin and bear it and go buy your extra toilet paper like the rest of us.
