A snowstorm is predicted for New England tonight….a mere 5-8 inches for the inland and coastal areas of Connecticut and Rhode Island. After last year’s (2015) regular pounding of snow and ice, this storm’s prediction is only fractionally worrisome.
To those in the Mid-Atlantic region, however, the predictions have created a paralysis in air and ground transportation. There has been the traditional run on the milk and bread aisles in the markets. Netflix has been forewarned. The East Coast has ground to a halt with snow predictions from 12-24 inches and winds reaching 50 m.p.h.
This storm’s fury-Winter Storm Jonas- has rendered the capitol of the most powerful nation on Earth immobile. All of this, a reminder of our own insignificance.
Six million years…we are still at Nature’s mercy.
