Poll: What's Your Biggest Issue About Snow in the Garden State?

Just another headache or a good chance to clear your head, what do you see in those whirling flakes?

For some lucky folks, snow conjures up images of kids building snowmen, hurling snowballs, sledding down hills, and traipsing home for cups of hot chocolate. For the rest of us realists, the white stuff is just another problem to deal with, especially when weather forecasts predict accumulations of eight to 10 inches. Besides, it's hard to be touched by freshly fallen snow when you know it's going to be pocked, scarred, and stained in just a few hours. That's why we're asking:

What's your biggest issue about the snow in the Garden State?

  • Why all the panic? We live in the Northeast and should be used to a little snow. The reality is there have been almost as many warm days as there have been cold. People need to get over themselves.

  • State emergencies, school closings, late openings: when did we become such wimps? Our roads and transportation systems should be able to handle some snow, and if they can’t, we need to invest in a better system.

  • I love the snow. You get to snuggle at home and take an unscheduled day of rest. Forget the rat race. It’s nature’s way of telling us to take a deep breath.

  • Schools, businesses, and government have taken the right approach to this weather -- caution. Snow and ice do a lot of damage and it's better to be safe than sorry. I’m just glad I have a snowblower.

  • This crazy weather -- just like the past few years -- should remind everyone of how our climate is changing. The weather has been ferocious, and we have to start thinking about how to best protect our environment.
