Really? Pittsburgh television newscasts telling viewers last night to "stay at home" today and "don't use the roads unless it's absolutely necessary"? Schools cancelling classes for today or going remote a day in advance? What kind of society have we become? No wonder small businesses are closing left and right in this city. Just insane. Shelter in place and be afraid everyone. Wow.

Same here and for other areas around here. Not sure why the pre-snow panic.

Not sure how cancelling in-school instruction equates to being afraid.
The roads are bad in my area and in many other school districts. Sirens have been going off a lot since the morning...

Honestly, I’m surprised things aren’t shut down more often. I think it’s kind of cruel to expect and obligate people to go out in dangerous conditions. I don’t know if y’all are getting what we are getting up here but good lord!

Back in my day, we walked to school in four feet of snow, uphill, both ways! Today's kids are spoiled brats.

(someone had to say it.)

Ha - glad you did. Maybe schools would delay or close if 6+ inches. But only if the snow was in process of coming down hard. No day-before closings. It's winter. It snows. Plan accordingly. Too much coddling of society.

As someone who has worked in Emergency Management for almost 20 years I see no issue with this and applaud anyone being proactive to reduce public risk. Its not like they were calling for 1-2, if we had gotten 6 inches overnight there would have been issues and reducing traffic for emergency response is prudent.

If they didn't do something to try and mitigate the risks then major issues occurred those same people would be complaining on the other side.

A litigious one.
