Two to three feet of snow, in places not used to getting that much snow all at once (much less an entire winter). Travel will be impossible, cities will be paralyzed, food has disappeared from most store's shelves. A true apocalyptic event (albeit temporary).
In Minnesota, we call that kind of thing Wednesday.
Will Smith Joins List of Actors Boycotting Oscars
They have a problem in Hollywood. And it's the second year in a row. But let's face it, this isn't a new problem for them. Have you seen many films? If so, you know they're not all that culturally diverse.
So a group of over-hyped stars (at least in their minds) with over-sized egos want me to worry about a show/event where they pat each other on the back and give out meaningless awards and make speeches giving undeserved adulations to one another?

Donald Trump Continues to Lead in Many Polls
If you're a mainstream conservative, you grimace every time you see him on TV. Or hear his name mentioned anywhere. Liberals? They are hoping (perhaps praying) this run ends -- quickly. Not that any of their candidates has the answers.
Someone asked me the other day if I thought The Donald would receive the Republican nomination. Maybe, I said. But history is not on his side. Early front runners typically fade. Back in 2008, our current President was barely a blip on the political radar at this point going into Iowa.
And by the way, I truly doubt we will see a Commander in Chief in the next fifteen to twenty years that will make any difference. Our country is too divided right now. Until someone has the guts to fix that problem, the Bush and Obama years will be seen as "good times".
Here's My Point
Everything is temporary, people. The three issues above? Just blips on the radar today, gone with tomorrow's sunrise (okay, we'll have to wait a while for the political thing to play out). But in the long-run, none of this really matters.
Once the Darkness arrives, a whole lot of things won't matter. Of the three above, only a major storm (of any type) will ever have an effect on your life. No one will remember who won what award, who Donald Trump was, or even what life was once like.

According to one reader, it scared the sh*t out of her.
