    I’d just like to know, honesty and sincerely, how anyone can still believe this isn’t that serious. 

    This is probably the largest mobilization and disruption of American society since the Second World War. The stock market in a span of two weeks went from all time highs to one of the sharpest declines in American history. Virtually half the states, led by legislatures and governors of both parties have declared states of emergency and states are shutting all public schools.

    Like, do you really think we’d be doing this if this virus were another flu? Do you really think places like China, South Korea, Italy, and Spain would halt their economies for a bad flu season? 

    We can disagree on the eventual scope. Maybe the mortality rate is closer to .4% than 2%. Perhaps the transmission rate slows during warmer months. But the facts are the facts and the math is the math and it ain’t got squat to do with what Obama did in 2009 and what the swine flu may or may not have done. 

    Amen Brother.

    To add context to this, my mom lives in a county where there’s been multiple coronavirus cases and a death. 

    Today she needed to go to the emergency room. This was at 4pm today, ambulance and all, under a physician’s order.

    The local hospital is a madhouse. It’s 11pm and she still doesn’t have a room. Now imagine dozens of coronavirus patients needing care at the same time in rural areas. Imagine hundreds or thousands in urban understaffed hospitals.

    Us young and healthy folks have to stop looking at it from our narrow personalized perspective.

    I once saw them up forecasted snow totals from 6 inches to 24 inches in 8 hours, and then we wound up getting nothing due to marginal temperatures lol. I don't think they will ever have a bigger forecast bust than that. 

    Are you forgetting about the March 4-6 2001 ultimate bust?? We went from being forecasted 24-36”+ to zippy in about 8 hours...

    Before the move I lived in Glen Burnie all my life, so 2010 and all the classic HECS (2003, 1996, etc). I experienced up there. January 2000 was huge in southern MD too wasn’t it?

    Yes we got about 18" out of that one in Charlotte Hall ( Where I grew up, at the northern tip of St. Marys) I remember I was up playing guitar when the 10 oclock news came on and Sue Palka said anyone who went to bed before this newscast is in for a rude awakening when they wake up!! That was such an awesome storm because we were supposed to get 1-2" of slop and then the storm was heading out to sea. The last couple years havent been great, but we have actually managed to eek out a little more than those in the northern portion of the sub-forum. I am hoping we get one HECS this year to ease the pain of the last few years.

    Final total: 8.0". This is the 2nd biggest storm since I've moved here (HECS 2016, when 15.5" fell, is #1).

    Snowboard measurements listed below:

    2.3" (12am, 1/13)

    3.6" (8:15am, 1/13)

    0.2" (2:15pm, 1/13)

    1.7" (11pm, 1/13)

    0.2" (7am, 1/14)

    Where did you move from?
