Down here in North Alabama, we close schools and stock up on canned food as soon as it starts snowing. Usually it's just random flurries and a few icy patches on the roads, but we did get a good snow back in early January.
I think getting southerners off the roads when the roads are icy is good because most of us cant drive worth shit in good weather (myself included)
Ok, I might have been a little sarcastic in this post, but it's true enough to make a good generalization (perhaps stereotype is a better word?) about the locals
edit: I think I've reached my smiley face quota for today.
