Cliff Mass Blog, When 15 inches of snowfall in a short period of time is a common occurrence where you live, then of course it’s not “news”. When the same amount drops on an area that gets that much snowfall perhaps once in every five or six years, it does, by definition qualify as newsworthy.
And what is it with people anyway and their pathological obsession with pointing out things like this? Every year somebody feels compelled to utter something along the lines of, “well, WHERE I LIVE ______ (insert favorite local excessive meteorological phenomenon) happens ALL THE TIME, so the rest of you are pathetic nincompoops for not knowing how to deal with it EVEN IF IT ONLY HAPPENS TO YOU ONCE IN A BLUE MOON!”? Seriously, I don’t get this neurotic need to one-up people who don’t normally experience the same kind of shtty weather conditions you seem to live with on a more-or-less permanent basis. As if shtty weather, like a consistently losing sports team, is something to be proud of?
