I am in Omaha, Nebraska currently, and I am heading to Des Moines, Iowa in about a hour. To beat the snow storm they are to be having there after midnight.
My question is how can anyone survive in the mid-west if 3 to 5 inches of snow is a storm? I was in Augusta, Maine last January and they closed there entire capital down because they were to be getting 3 inches of snow. At 5:00 p.m. even all the malls had shut down for the extreme 3 inches of snow they were getting.
I live on the east coast in Pennsylvania. 3 to 6 inches of snow is not a storm. I do not understand why these areas get all excited over a few inches of snow. Is it this way for everyone?
