This is snow

I was discussing the recent snow that hit the mid-Atlantic with my boss the other day. He’s a Buffalo native so he was mostly unimpressed by the storm and the subsequent freakout it caused among watchers of TV hysteria news.

“This is snow,” he said, directing his browser to the YouTube video below of the ’77 Blizzard that wreaked ridiculous havoc on the people of Buffalo.

I thought he was exaggerating about having to climb out his second-story window to leave his house. Then I watched the video.
