A snow emergency?

Good evening, Netizens...

Do you remember last year's snow storms that paralyzed Spokane? Well, here is a view of the last storm to hit the East Coast, and now another storm is hovering, waiting to unload its next band of fury. Move over, Tom Sherry.

I believe we had it worse here in Spokane last year than they have had in our nation's capital, Boston and New York. The only thing we need is for someone in authority to step before the microphone and announce, “There is no snow emergency” to make their plight as bad as Spokane last winter at this time.


This would be a comedy of astronomical proportions were it not for the fact the entire federal government in Washington, DC is shut down at the present time. More than a million workers were told to stay home until further notice, now that another storm is hacking its way ever eastward. Trains, planes and most automobiles have stopped running on-schedule since last Friday.


In your opinion is the storm on the East Coast as bad as what we endured in Spokane last winter?
