In cases of a Snowpocalypse it is really the panicked reaction of said citizens and NOT the actual snow that makes the situation worthy of the title. People simply aren't used to it, lose their heads and blame the city for the weather.
6 days of sheer horror, the likes of which gripped us all in fear and ineptitude. God have mercy on our children as they look back on those dark, dark days of the Great Snowpocalypse.
** Speculation is still pending on whether this was the act of terrorists. No group has yet come forward and claimed responsibility.
