***THE OFFICIAL WINTER STORM Q PANIC THREAD***
 
It looks like they are calling for upwards of a foot of snow from Wed night until Thursday night. Let the panic and mad rushes to Wal-Mart begin.

6-12" predicted in Topeka.

This weather is bad for the hardwood floorin' bidness.

People in the midwest panic like a mfer about snow, completely forget how to drive etc.

I really started noticing it after moving back from alaska.

Come to Nashville where the threat, not actual snowfall just the threat, of snow will shut the schools down.

I think that's happened here once or twice, and I swear there's a correlation between cloudiness and traffic.

I can work from home, so don't even care any more... during the first snow this year (a couple inches), I noticed Google maps said my 7-10 minute commute would take 28 minutes, which was all I needed to stay home.

Katie Horner moved to St. Louis...no panic here.

Is it supposed to get bad? All I heard was rain turning to snow maybe.

I thought Omaha was in the bullseye of the storm. A foot+ for those guys.

6-12 right now for the KC area. Icey mix a bit to the south and over a foot closer to NE is predicted, but that can all change pretty quick.

Apparently, I'm gonna be on WDAF tonight talking about how Social Media fuels the panic of large storms.

Feel free to offer up any talking points... i was going to be on air talking about the Burger King Anonymous hack... instead, it appears that I'll be discussing this weather thing instead.

Nice. I'm heading on a trout trip to the white river in Arkansas. Should be a fun drive.

ImAWalkingCorpse 02-18-2013 02:26 PM

Thursday is a vacation day for me anyway.

Pitt Gorilla 02-18-2013 02:30 PM

We've had similar snows for years. It's really not a big deal.

They need to open up a text line where east coast types can send us coin to help us cope...
