  •  Maybe I'm missing something... (0+ / 0-)

    ... but I was in that diary all evening, and WD wasn't dismissing the storm.

    He was making fun of the French Toast Panickers, and of the Weather Channel, but he was also saying the same thing as Governor Patrick, "STAY HOME; wait it out".

    The trolls we were dealing with that night were about "quit dismissing this storm, I have to get to my minimum wage job during the storm".  I sympathize with that commenter (if he wasn't a troll), but the T was shutting down, the Governors were instituting driving bans, and most retail/restaurants weren't going to re-open until Saturday evening or Sunday.  All this because it was going to take time to clear the 2-3 feet of snow off the roads, and believe me, his manager out in 495-exubria is not going to make it into town today.

      Still looks like dismissive mockery to me.  As in:

      It's not like you're under the gun of a major tornado outbreak. It's a slow, steady snow that makes everything look pretty.
      ...
      It's just snow. People will probably get hurt or killed driving out in it, but the same thing happens on a sunny day.

      Mark Twain: It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.
