As of 11 a.m. today the Star Tribune reported a large storm moving toward Minnesota. Beginning tonight, the Twin Cities is expected to see the start to this storm that the National Weather Service predicts will bring between 6 and 14 inches by Tuesday morning. As for tomorrow there is a 100 percent chance of snow. Similarly, this past Sunday the White House experienced a blizzard that President Barack Obama called a "snowmageddon," with over 16 inches hammering Washington, D.C. Likewise, Virginia received 32 inches and Philadelphia with 28.5, and both cities experienced power outages.
Due to the timing of this event, we see factors of immediacy taking place; a specific time frame being present. Proximity is also present when concerning not only the state of Minnesota, but more specifically the regions which affect us personally, like the Twin Cities for all U of M students. This event impacts us all, especially with concerns about safety and transportation.
