NOW THE REST OF THE COUNTRY GETS TO COMPLAIN ABOUT A LITTLE BIT OF SNOW
February 21 2013
Tucson, AZ – Winter is a dark and cold time, it is every year and this year is no different. Despite the effects of global warming having a very positive effect on the cold climate in many countries, every now and then the world gets blasted.
That happened a couple of weeks ago on the East Coast, a region used to snow and cold. The blizzard that hit that region was certainly an inconvenience, but nothing that people of region could not deal with considering how used to snow they are. That is not the case for people in Arizona, however.
That state, though, is now facing a massive snow storm, the result a rare storm that is sweeping across the Southern and Midwest portions of the U.S. and dropping quite a bit of snow, at least quite a bit of snow for that region of the country. In other places, like say the North East, the amount of snow they got in Arizona would barely merit wearing a coat outside, but in states not used to it, the severe weather is like the new ice age is coming, or something.
States all across the country are in the path of the new storm, causing flight cancellations and way overdramatic reactions to a little bit of white stuff on the ground, stuff most people all around the country are pretty used to seeing.
It’s not yet clear if the states affected will be forced to shut down as a result of the bad weather which has put literally inches of snow on the roads but officials will likely be considering all options.
It’s not clear if the people of Arizona even realized that it was snow that was falling, perhaps believing that the clouds were coming down.
“This is certainly unusual weather for the region of the country and the people there are totally unequipped to deal with it, like totally unequipped. Like so much so that they are probably going to start panicking and not go outside, afraid that even touching the snow will freeze them from the soul outwards, which likely will not happen,” said Scrape TV Weather analyst Graham Gilliam. “I mean millions of people deal with snow every single year and don’t die from a single touch so it’s unlikely that these people will either. Sure they aren’t used to the weather but that doesn’t mean they have developed and allergy to it or anything.”
The most affected states are the ones least used to snow which thus has to become a huge drama.
“Hopefully people will be able to survive this event, this dramatic and certainly frightening event will all this frozen precipitation falling from the sky. It’s scary, to say the least, to see that kind of thing for the first time but you have to be brave and willing to experience new and sometimes difficult things. Hopefully they will all manage,” continued Gilliam. “They need to remind themselves that it is only precipitation, like rain. Rain happens all the time, this is only cold rain, slightly frozen rain. When you think of it like that it’s really not so bad at all. Just keep thinking like that and everything will be okay, just hang on.”
It’s not clear how many suicides will occur during the storm, though probably none.
