It snowed in Florida on Wednesday and people lost their damn minds

For the first time in nearly 30 years, white stuff fell from the sky on Wednesday in Tallahassee, Fla.

Needless to say, people were pretty excited about it.

Grayson, the winter storm that’s set to pummel the East Coast today, dropped snow in the northern part of the Sunshine State, according to Time Magazine. It stopped falling by the afternoon, but people had already taken to Twitter to voice their thoughts on the precipitation.

It is going to snow today

Or, depending on when you’re reading this, it’s already snowing.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for the Upper Valley today. We’re expected to get 5 to 8 inches, but some places could see up to 12.

If you’re lucky enough to have a snow day, enjoy it! If you have to work (someone has to put the paper out, after all), travel slowly, dress warm and stay safe.

Vermont officials: Get yer winter tires on before the snow flies

Vermont is urging residents to put winter tires on their vehicles, recommending the measure as one that will help to avoid accidents, according to The Associated Press.

State Commissioner of Public Safety Tom Anderson said Tuesday in Colchester he had to learn “the hard way” that Vermont residents need winter tires.


The AP report goes on to say that Anderson and other state officials said “they would not endorse the idea of requiring winter tires through a legal mandate.”

It’s not that unusual a mandate — interestingly, our neighbors to the north, the Canadians, require all vehicles registered in the province of Quebec have snow tires. (The more you know.)

Do you put snow tires on your car?
