As the Midwest is pounded by "Snowmaggeddon", I think back (while sipping coffee in my office after a leisurely commute...embarrassed for the science of meteorology) to my days growing up in Buffalo, New York. Long time mayor, Jimmy Griffin, gave sage advice to the citizens of Western New York that is certainly applicable to those who are currently home bound due to the "devastating blizzard" (local news station designation, not mine) gripping the Midwest right now.
During the Blizzard of 1985, Mayor Griffin (pictured above) recommended to Buffalo residents "go home, buy a six pack of Genny (beer), and watch a good football game." This earned him the nickname "Jimmy Six Pack."
Wisdom can be pretty simple. Be safe my Midwestern friends.
