It seems as though we have some doomsday type weather heading our way here in NW Arkansas (and part of Oklahoma and Missouri). 1-2" of ice, power outages, yadda yadda yadda. The clip above doesn't sound doomsdayish - but people have been out of their freakin' minds while shopping for supplies and the news hasn't exactly helped the situation at all.
Now, now, I know what you northerners are saying "anytime it just hints of cold weather, people down south do the freak out dance". Let me tell you, 1-2" of ice isn't the same as snow or cold weather. We're talking ice rink conditions out there people. I live in a very hilly place and the last thing I want to do is test the traction on my very old and slightly balding tires while heading west on North street (if you are from around here, then you know which street I'm referring to).
If the power does go out then I'll feel badly for those with electric stoves and no blankets - but I've got a gas stove, plenty of cans of soup, and blankets enough for the entire block.
Bring it on.
