Surviving the Snow

February 10, 2010 | NeW Staff

I still cannot get over how much snow has landed on the East Coast this winter.  As a lifelong Floridian, I had barely even seen snow before moving to Kentucky.  We’ve had our share of snowfall in the Bluegrass this winter, but it pales in comparison to what you folks up east are experiencing right now.  When we get 4-5 inches here, the snow plows are out in full force, you have to avoid neighborhood roads, snow boots and puffy coats are a must, and children swarm the hills with sleds in tow.  I’m having a hard time getting my mind around how many FEET have fallen in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast.  I’ve enjoyed following much of the snow fall on Twitter, as political pundits are cooped inside with no way to get into work but still finding political issues to discuss and analyze.  

I’m curious, NeW blog readers, what are your thoughts on all this snow?  If you live in an area that has been hit by the blizzards, share your stories and what you’ve been doing to stay warm and stay occupied during this winter storm.  How are you holding up?  Have classes and work been cancelled?

And for all of you Floridians soaking up the sunshine right now, don’t rub it in.  I remember those days all too well, enjoy it!
