The sky is falling! The sky is falling!

Oh wait, that's just snow.

Once again, the local news makes snowfall into the leading news story for the day, and probably for tomorrow, too. They get everybody hyped up. North and West of us is different, they're getting more snow than we are. Philadelphia area is supposed to get 1-3 inches, than it's supposed to turn into freezing rain later, than rain. I know, the freezing rain can be tricky, and so can the snow. But c'mon -- 1-3 inches? That's hardly worth getting everybody riled up. They were in the stores this morning, showing people buying shovels and people stocking up at the grocery store because, you know, those 3 inches of snow may force us to stay inside for two weeks. Whatever will we do?

C'mon folks! This is the Northeast! Snow happens! I'm sure the Upstate New Yorkers are laughing their butts off at the silly "city people" down in Philadelphia.

    GOT ICE?

    LOL. I know what you mean about the news crews dramatizing the snow. It's been "snowing" (more like flurrying) all day and sure there is a little bit of snow on the ground, but if you just take it slow then no worries. The freezing rain tonight might be an issue in the morning, but I just ran out and the roads seemed fine to me.

    Anyway, I wanted to share this photo I took this morning when I was at The Residences at Dockside condominiums this morning at Penn's Landing. Check out all the ice on the Delaware River. That's the Ben Franklin Bridge in the background. It's just hard to see with the snow.

    There are more pics at www.lifeonthedelaware.com, a new blog Dockside started to chronicle the lives of people that live, work and play along the waterfront. You should check it out.

    Stay warm!

    Isn't is stupid when a "snow" state panics over a few inches? Mother Nature put us in our place with a blizzard a week ago, now this storm system is parked and buying the Michigan/Indiana border (all the comapany offices are closed) Finally.. a break! Stay warm! :)

    Now if that had been the weather forecast for me...here on the coast of California, I could see the hype over it...we NEVER get snow! I still feel bad for you...isn't it cold???
