We do not get much snow here, last year we had two or three days with snow on the ground...hope this year is more of the same, people who dont see snow all that much really don't know how to drive on the stuff...
I still recall what was a famous Nor'Easter hit NJ.
It dumped 3-5 foot of snow over night, entirely
burying everyone's cars, making it next to
impossible to clear the roads, lest you plow into
parked cars concealed beneath the snow drifts.
What brings it to mind was that one of my Southern
relatives came up for a visit that year, and
experienced more than the usual Alabamian "glazing"
for the first time in his life!
As I've already related, we lived within an
industrial park... so my dad would sometimes
volunteer to get up before day break to clear the
parking lots before the other workers would arrive.
When Gary got up in the morning and asked where
my dad was, we casually told him that he was out
plowing the snow.
We still have a laugh over Gary's astonishment
over WTH anyone would want to get on a tractor
and plow snow!?!
what the heck would he plant???
He also couldn't grok Snowshovels... He was game
to help dig out our car, but he figured whatever
needed doing was to be done using a garden shovel.
LOL we gave up trying to explain that the noise
he heard out in the street was made by something
