You DID make the news out here last night. Our weather nerd apparently lived in the area and got off on a 20 second description of the effect while the anchors just looked at him like he was some kind of witch doctor.
Out here, snow's a novelty. I talk about growing up in MN and the 4' drifts we saw and they get all giddy. I tell 'em how much snow really does suck and they look like I kicked their puppy. They actually seek out bad weather up in the mountains ... it's crazy. They can't drive in a small rain shower much less an ice storm.
I'll take 'em over what's snew... any day of the year
