So, there is 3" of snow on the ground and they are all over the news telling people not to go anywhere, and to stay off the roads. Its not supposed to warm up for a couple days, and I dont think this town owns any snow plows... Could be an interesting couple days.

Time for you to take out the XJ and blow past slow drivers to show 'em how it's done.

Hah. Ah the memories..

No one knows how to drive in it

No plows
=
Panic

You want everyone to stay home, it'd be either a death race or gridlock otherwise.

What's a true disaster is an UN-FORECAST snowfall during the week!

A couple years back there was a surprise inch of snow in the middle of the day and the panic COMPLETELY gridlocked the city and all suburbs. Roads turned to ice as people left work and compacted the snow on the roads, buses couldn't get to schools, neither could parents and thousands of kids and teachers SPENT THE NIGHT AT SCHOOL. What's worse, some buses that left schools as they shut down early got stuck in the road for hours, ful of kids, unable to go anywhere.

Plows couldn't get anywhere, folks slept at work... it was a nightmare.

That one day will forever force school closings on the slightest forecast of ANY snow. I'm sure the local news stations are pulling up the helicopter shots of that night today... you'll see it.

I left work one morning last week, it was -10 and the roads were covered with ice. Kids still had school.

No wonder they lost the civil war. Sounds like they all tend to "Bitch up" when things are different than usual. If I lived there, I'd be bringing that up all the time.

You should go to the bar in sc. and talk about the war . good way to get in a fight . They take that stuff to heart down here . but everything stops if it snows here .No plows or salt and people who have never had to drive in snow or ice . last year it was only below freezing 13 times all year . that was in the middle of the night .

that is soo true...I have buddies that live down there and they always introduce me as their "yankee friend" followed by "don't worry he's cool" as if they sit around and talk about what they would do to a non-cool yankee if they ever meet one!

Alright, I just ran out to get toothpaste and to browse around REI for a bit, and guess what? Everything is fucking closed. Roads are almost dry, and its not snowing. What a bunch of shenanigans.

On a side note, it was hilarious to watch my puppy play in the snow for the first time. When I opened the door to take him out this morning, he wouldn't step out and looked at me like "wtf is this shit?" Once I pushed his ass out the door, he didnt want to come back in all day.

One time when my dad was down in Georgia for work and it was to going to snow there, everyone went into panic mode and everything shut down. He actually got pulled over for driving while it was snowing, but he was good to go once he told the cop he was from Michigan
