Here is the big deal

And i've said this time and time again.

These areas are not prepared in any way shape or form for a snowfall of this magnatude....

My street still isnt plowed... I can't get a car out, and I really doubt if it will be plowed till tomorrow. I spent some time in Toronto, near your city and yes there was plenty of snow, but they were on the ball with it.

This area, a storm of this magnatude just shuts anything and everything down. I still remember the bizzard of 1996 - we were stuck here for a week.

That just doesnt happen in areas that get a lot of snow. I remember in Toronto it was routine to see 4-5 ft of snow on lawns etc, but the roads were perfectly clear... Not the case here. 21 dead already due to the storm, and I'm sure it will climb as morons head back to the road, without any clue how to drive in this weather, or any preparation to deal with it. Summer tires - All season at best - People do not even know what a tire chain is around here.

Oh well sorry for the ranting -
