- It wasn't the 2-3" of snow that was the problem. It was the ice that screwed up traffic.
- Significant snow is so rare there that it's not worth spending money on plows, sand trucks, and other things to prep for it.
- In Alabama, the forecasters really did get it wrong, saying it would fall farther south.
Anyway, it's easy to scoff at anyone farther south than you, but Japan has us all beat. You think you've got it rough? How about 50 feet of snow? Amazing pics here.
