I am so fed up with asshats saying that we can't handle the snow or we can't drive or any other assanine attempt to put us down. This crap was forecasted to be 125 miles south of b'ham and this was at 8:00 am!!! By 11:00 James Spann was telling people to get a hotel room!!! There was even one guy from here calling people goons and getting on his soap box about how smart and well prepared he was. There was a massive pileup because they waited too long to let kids and parents out. People freak out when the thought of not getting your child enters their mind.
Bottom line southerners can and will endure because we help one another. We are the ones pulling neigbors out of demolished homes after tornadoes. We don't wait for fema we do it ourselves. After reading countless crap from some northerners there is no doubt I am where I am supposed to be. I love my state and I love my fellow man. Anyone that says different can kiss it twice.
Oh, Bluebird I am so happy to hear your boy is safe.

Keep in mind, up north we have lots of snowplows and salters. Down south they don't because it doesn't snow that much down there. If there wasn't plows or salters we'd be in trouble too.

Exactly. Your area is prepared for what weather conditions you see most. We are prepared for tornadoes. I wouldn't put people in Maine down because they don't have tornado shelters. I guess some folks just like to get their jollies by putting others down. Whatever. Anyone, anywhere at any time can be caught off guard. That's why you must be prepared at your house and in your car. Shoot, I could probably live out of my purse!!tounge

Exactly! Many homes in America don't have basements because they don't live in tornado ally. Same as Atlanta not having salt and snow plow trucks. I think people just like to feel holier-than-thou.
