I was referring to the quotes by the people polled.

Not to the story itself, which is news because it is happening.

Same deal with people in northern states, hell me and my brother used to go play paint ball when schools/work had snow day. Yes it makes drive a little more difficult and you have to be more attentive, but it's just snow, it will melt eventually.

The storm of the century only dropped 5 inches in Detroit. There appears to be some amazing snowmobiling and snowboarding conditions in Michigan. I reckon I can drive my ATV through the swamp instead.

In a couple of months it'll be back to slammin' the windows shut, closing all the curtains, closing all doors, crankin' up the A/C, showering several times a day, and mumbling "why why why why why did I ever move to Florida."

Feb. 1: A stranded motorist reaches for her shovel to try and dig out her car in Edmond, Okla.


Feb. 2: The massive storm dumped 20.2 inches of snow on Chicago, making it the city's third largest storm on record (Chuck Leto/Fox News).

I'm sure people in Chicago will love their weather when another hurricane rips through Florida and we can see the parking lot on all the available freeways leaving Florida.

Haven't had a hurricane for a few years, have we? Hopefully that history will continue - but I'd STILL live the possibility of hurricanes over monthly winter blizzards in the NE.

Chicago hasn't had a storm like this in 12 years. This isn't typical. New York City only averages 22 inches of snow for the entire winter. Philadelphia averages only 19 inches so no the Northeast doesn't get monthly blizzards.
