Until your place burns down or something and you have no offsite backup, not to mention the fact that the hard drives costs you in the first place ;)

acecombat mentioned the backup aspect of cloud storage. But even beyond that, do you want to have to carry a USB flash drive everywhere you go? Do you ever work on projects with collegues or clients who are not all on the same network? Have you ever worked on a presentation with several people across the country by emailing the file around and then had pleasure of trying to consolidate all of the changes? Believe me, clouding storage and computing is a big deal.

Only a fool would put their unencrypted personal/private data on any network they don't exclusively control, so that's really not as big of an issue. However, there is a risk in sharing sensitive proprietary information in this fashion. Like anything else, there are always tradeoffs between risk and convenience.
