: We have some news outlets here that try to work the public into a panic every time a
: flake of snow or drop of rain is predicted. Last week, we had a doom-and-gloom
: forecast that produced a light dusting of snow. After a few really bad storms with
: lengthy power outages a few years ago, the public in this area is very susceptible
: to being panicked. I just hate seeing those fears being exploited.
