I suppose this will get moved to the philosophy forum. Here is the local forecast: TODAY Periods of heavy snow this morning, followed by periods of heavy snow in the afternoon, then periods of heavy snow this evening, intermingled with periods of even heavier snow. Blowing snow. Drifting snow. Snow may be heavy at times this morning and the foreseeable future. Visibility poor or worse at times due to snow. Total snow accumulation of 18 to 24 inches on top of other snow, with yet more snow on top of that. Chance of snow near 100 percent. Chance of no snow 0%. Even the Eskimos don't have a word for this. Think blizzard plus flurries. And we don't get mentioned in the news stories because it's even worse at the White House.
