Time for people to freak out!!

So the talk around my office all morning has been about this "blizzard" rolling into town this evening/tonight...lol It's just funny how we deal with this stuff every year but the day before a storm, everyone gets on edge. Supposed to be about 67 here in the Springs today and then 27 tomorrow. Seems like you all up in the Denver area and out East should get the big dumps. Such a typical Colorado week.

Agreed. You'd think people had never seen snow before. Also why I went to the store at 10pm last night and got everything I need for the next couple days as I know it's going to be a zoo soon.

I've noticed that before every storm all of the stores are sold out of tissues and hand lotion.

Hey... my hands are dry and I get a runny nose...


Seriously though, I hope it passes fast. I want warm weather, not this bi-polar crap.

You gusy think they panic here try the south! People would clear the shelves of bread, water and canned goods a day in advance of a forecast for 1-2''. They would close schools, works, and once some roads for a FORECAST of 2'' of snow. No exaggeration.

In a way I'm lucky that I don't work and can't drive lol. While you all take time off work and "stock up" I make David go out

And then you go up north to my home state of Montana and with a foot or more, everyone is out and about and nothing closes. Complete opposite of here and the south. That's why I don't mind the snow.

Hahahaha this thread cracks me up. If yall think it's bad here, you have NO IDEA. Back in Tennessee and Virginia people lose their damn minds. Gas stations run out of gas, grocery stores become completely sold out, there are thousands of trucks delivering firewood 24/7. It's hilarious. In February 2010 the DC area got 2 feet and then two days later got another 18" and everything was shut down for 10 days or so. It was fun to have a capable vehicle and be the ONLY one on the roads other than the plows

Sad thing is if this was February, we'd hardly be talking about it.
