I'm only looking forward to it because I'll be getting out of school.
In that case, be thankful you live in a region that has no idea what to do with itself when some cold weather comes its way.
Back home in (central/northern) Illinois, we wouldn't have called an ice storm after a few inches of snow some sort of storm of "historic" propotions or an "emergency"... we would have called it "a mild winter, now quit yer whining and get to school/work - you're late!"
Agreed! Except for one small problem.
Back home in Nebraska, your "back home" in Central Illinois would be eating our leftovers.
In other words, unless the temperature is colder than 4F/-15C with a wind chill factoer of -20F, this is just another day to get to work.
