FC 135 - Overreaction is at Least an Action

All they've been able to talk about on the news is the storm that's blowing in, how commutes are going to be crazy, and to tune in for the latest school closures, etc. Well, the "storm" arrived today and there was some snow. And then about an hour later, it melted. But that was enough to cancel school, work, and put chains on the public buses. While out walking the dog, I saw a couple of school kids playing basketball in short sleeves. I'm not saying Portland is full of a bunch of wussies, but....

Anyway, it all got me thinking about how different places react differently to weather. In Wisconsin, a couple inches of snow doesn't even rate a call to the superintendent, I bet. In, say, Portland, merely the mention of snow in the forecast pretty much seals the deal.

Anyway, if you don't think this comic is funny*, I hope you can at least find humor in this mass overreaction to snow that so characterizes unaccustomed places. Because that's what I was going for.

I remember one time I hadn't done some homework and was praying for school to be canceled. Thank the Lord, Dallas got a threat of incoming sleet that day! But otherwise, it's mainly a matter of equipment - Dallas doesn't have the capacity to clean up an inch of snow properly...
