It does not usually snow in the south, particularly where I am, in Louisiana. I have seen soooooooo many idiot people calling out southern folks for not being able to drive in the snow. I want the 14 year olds to understand that your ignorant statements are comparable to us, in the south, telling people in New York, "Super Storm Sandy wasn't even a hurricane, why did you make such a huge deal out of it???" I made it through Hurricane Andrew, Katrina, and Rita......... You know why Sandy was a huge deal? New England was not equipped for or used to tropical weather. We are down south. You know why snow has been such a huge deal down here? Because we only have it every 5-10 years. And then when we do, it's 1-2 inches---not half a foot. We are not equipped for or used to snow.
So stop being a moron and analyze what you are saying. "Well they should invest in snow plows and salting trucks down there! They're idiots for not having equipment to fix their roads!!!" No, because it rarely snows here. That's like us investing in precautions for earthquakes or for polar bear attacks or for the running of the bulls or dolphin invasions. It makes no sense to spend all of our money on blizzard equipment we will use once every 10 years. We spend our money on things we need to survive hurricanes and tornadoes and floods.
"Well obviously they just can't drive down there and I am an awesome driver and herp derp derp" You couldn't drive in the ice and snow down here either, because we don't have snow plows, scrapers, and salt trucks down here. You know why you CAN drive on the roads up there?? Because your roads have been treated for winter weather idiot.
"Well u guys should treat ur roads" Please see the previous paragraph.
In short, Georgia ignored the National Weather Service and decided to send everyone to work and school, on ICY--not snowy---ICY roads, that they could not treat, because they were unable too.
Thanks Georgia! Because of you, now I have to deal with tons of 13 year olds on Facebook from the north who think they are Nascar drivers on a polar circuit, ready to race their parent's subaru on ski slopes in Ontario, because of you.
Get your crap together Georgia and close school for a day the next time you are forecast to have a once in 10 years winter storm.
So while we are talking about the once in a lifetime snow that we never see here, I have decided to share a few of my pictures with you and a video of when it started, so you can see how fast it's falling. To most of you, this is no big deal, you see snow all the damn time and you are sick of it. For people who have never seen more than a flurry, for people who have seen literally ONE INCH as the most accumulation in their lifetimes, this half a foot business has been a huge deal.
That's just 4 seconds, nothing monumental, as it got started.
My car ended up encased in ice and snow and since our roads were untreated, I went nowhere.
SO ENOUGH ABOUT ME AND MY WHINING.
Let's talk about important things.
