Saying "snow" (the "s-word) in New Orleans causes unadulterated panic. The main routes out of town are closed, there was a run on grocery stores and businesses, government and airlines shut down. No, it's worse than what you think. Get this - there was a run on buying ice. ICE!!! The whole city was predicted to be a giant freezer full of ice/snow yet people were buying bags of ice all in preparation for today.
Today I wake up to the predicted snow-pocalyse and find... no snow, no ice and wunderground. com reports zero chance of precipitation. The streets are dry and deserted of cars.
At least I don't hear non-stop gun fire as if that was a proper response to Hurricane Katrina.
So tell me, is it just me or do we seem to have a reputation for irrational responses to weather?
