As Sen. John McCain (USN Capt. ret) commented “The United States Navy and Marine Corps have too many real enemies to defeat and deter.

100 million people to be affected by storm with up to two feet of snow stretching from Mississippi to Boston – and DC is ALREADY paralyzed after the first inch

Don’t I know it.  My late wife’s family used to live in the DC area and those people totally freaked out at the slightest hint of snow.  Visiting for the holidays I was the King of the Road driving my father-in-law to the store with my front wheel drive, on radial snow tires.  On a (barely) 5% grade that was dusted with snow, we went by a woman who had a death grip on the wheel and her rear tires were smoking with the speed the wheels were spinning. She had floored the gas and held it there.

Good luck to them, I guarantee that there won’t be anything left on the shelves by 5pm tonight.
