A weather conversation

Had a little online conversation with my brother today about the weather. Drew lives in Kansas City, where they’re expecting as much as a foot of snow this week.

I sent him a note saying good luck with the weather and to think of it as “Friendly greetings from North Dakota.”

Drew let me know he laughed and said that people there were talking about the “Snowpacalypse” down there, which is a phrase I’ve heard tossed around by weather people in big cities whenever they have snowstorms on the way.

I told Drew the truth: “We don’t use words like “Snopacalypse” in North Dakota. For us, that’s just Tuesday.”

Am I right?

    That’s just a bit of an over reaction to a little snow. Seems like for a storm to be called “Snowpacalypse” or “Snowmageddon”, it ought to be at least the worst storm in a lifetime, if not the worst storm ever. It shouldn’t be a storm the likes of which they see ….once every year or two. Granted, a foot of snow is a lot for those southerners, but it’s not something they have never seen before.
