When snow starts falling in Upstate South Carolina, grocery stores get ransacked, schools close & businesses shut down at a slight dusting of the ground with ZERO accumulation on the roads. This is referred to as snowsteria, a close cousin to hysteria.
I've been out shopping for milk & bread since the snowsteria was issued for tomorrow night. I bought twelve loaves of bread, but I could only round up seven gallons of milk... you can't ever be too careful.
Why are the schools opening today? They know the weatherman is calling for a snowsteria this afternoon.
With any luck I won't have to show up for work/school tomorrow since theirs a 20% chance of a snowsteria.
