I hate it when people say "It's like a blizzard out there!" when it's snowing when in actuality there is still full visibility out. Sorry folks, I'm from the snow belt, if there is still visibility, it isn't a blizzard.
I also hate it when your family is having issues and there is nothing you can do to help solve them.
