We have had some good winter storms in parts of the country and all we hear is how it brings out The Best in people, fighting over parking spaces, side walks, etc etc. Its a little snow not the End Of The World, get over it.
If your out of shape and the snow is kicking your a$$, take it as a kind reminder that you need to get you fat a$$ in fighting trim. Mother nature does not care about your age and neither will the enemy.
Go do PT.
I have been through some good storms while in the Army and the Army community always came together to Give Way Together and help dig our way out. I remember a big ice storm crushed our base, we could hear the trees snapping from the ice and about 0430hrs the base residents came out and started to clear the roads and driveways of snow/ice and broken trees in their areas. The people brought out coffee, tea and hot drinks to share. By the time the sun came up we had our Line Of Communications cleared.
If snow that is going to melt is going to get the better of you than you need to evaluate your prepping COA.
How resilient are you, your family, and your community? Be truthful and learn from the mistakes fill ing the gaps.
Like all A$$ chewing if it applies learn from it and move out, if it does not apply get a laugh from the stupid ones and then move out.
Go do PT, look at snow clearing as a WOD, put a stop watch on how fast you can move some snow.
DeOppresdorLiber, most people who with no military background have no idea what OPSEC is, so the chances are not many people here know either. But you're right. OPSEC is the best chance of keeping your life private and for getting away with retaliation.
