Is it real? People around here in south jersey are just repping the hype without question again.
This whole weather hysteria thing- maybe because I am only 31, I do not remember far back enough to have an accurate picture? But I feel like just in the last 5 years, people have degenerated into a quibbling mass of ignorant god-wrath fearing peasant lunatics who shudder hysterically at the slightest indication of weather that might disturb Pleasantville. "There will be snow" is enough to send panicked mobs through the grocery stores emptying the shelves. It is angering me more and more daily.
"Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."
