    The media keeps telling people to go to the markets, hardware stores, gas stations to stock up and buy, buy, buy...spend $ spend $ spend $  creating a panic mentality.

    C'mon it's a blizzard, not the end of the world!

    I'm not sure the media is sending that message. We're more showing what people are doing.

    I don't blame the media for people's shopping habits. They are just reporting on the crazy crowds at the various stores. I never hear people on the news stating that everyone should go out and stock up on groceries. People just do that on their own.

    I do hear advice to make sure you have shovels, ice melt etc...but I am usually shocked that in New England winters people don't keep those things on hand.

    I tend bar in Faneuil Hall, every time there's even a hint of a storm, the way the media sensationalizes these events and non-events kills any chance of my co-workers and I to earn a days wages.

    I feel you on that. I spent a few years in retail and used to keep the store I ran open as ling as I could so my staff would get paid.

    Yes, as a business owner about I'm expecting that I'm losing about 50% productivity for 150 employees as folks have to work from home for today. Another business I own incurs significant expense to clear snow every time there is a snow fall, so that will be expensive as well, though given the snow drought for the past 1.5 years I'm probably still ahead!
