Last time I checked it was February. I live in the Midwest. The average temperature this time of year is 32 degrees. There is always a chance for snow, this area averages 38 inches per year. Unless it's July or August there is no history of a chance of snow.
Yet every time it snows here the news media goes crazy.
I know this will make me sound old, but when I was younger I don't remember snow being a big deal unless the forecast was for feet not inches of snow. Is it just me or are we celebrating mediocrity yet again?
