The NWS forecast and a typical Southerner's point of view.

The NWS forecast and a typical Southerner's point of view.
I guess I should specify that I don't share the opinions I've expressed in the photo. I exaggerated (but not much) to make a point. If you travel in my area in the wintertime, or if you grew up living here, you probably understand the point I'm trying to make. Some people lose all sanity when the word "snow" appears in the forecast. The store shelves are emptied and many people go into a mass state of panic. I'm still not sure the folks around here realize that the rest of the world is smiling at our idiocy concerning snow. Well, fortunately we don't get much of this around here or people would start making plans to move to Florida. I say, "Let it snow!"

We could get a foot or more here. Time to get the snowblower out.

That would shut South Carolina down for a month-and-a-half, Ron. But I guess you guys are used to it. Build a snowman, or a snow family, have a snowball fight, make some snow cream and think of us poor guys down here who don't know how to live through even a mild Winter storm, much less a bigger one. :)

Thanks, Menno. We have to stop and laugh at ourselves sometimes. It's strange, but not many people who live near me think my comments are funny. They seem to take it personally. I think they're convicted in their hearts because they know they're guilty. lol

Thats a typical winter week here in Central Ontario :) the ice on roads is never fun though, but Ive drove all winter long on slicks before also :)

That would be a catastrophe down here. People can't drive on snow or ice with good treads on their tires. To drive with slick tires would endanger everyone for blocks away. :)

It really has changed our weather! I was just thinking that poor Al Gore probably doesn't know what to do. He's still trying to prove the world is getting warmer while the climate data for the last 14 years shows it staying the same or getting cooler. The poor guy is going to have to move to some tropical region for anyone to take his claims seriously. (but wasn't last year the year he said in which all the polar icecaps would have finished melting away?) Anyway, I've noticed the new buzzword from wanna-be scientists/politicians like Al Gore is "climate change." That certainly leaves them a lot of room for error. :)

Brilliant, change "snow" to "Christmas" and people here think that the shops are going to close for one month instead of one day!!! In some cases there were stores that opened up on Christmas day but did that change the mania of Christmas eve shopping?? No!

I have to agree, Deborah! (I never thought about making that comparison, but you make a great point!)
