NyiahYou misunderstand my point regarding vehicles prepped for winter (or I just worded it poorly, I think) In any other state, in "real" winter accumulations, tires & chains fit for the job would be necessary
I lived in New England for 30 years and never had snow tires or chains (which are illegal).

No offense, but I find it quite funny to a degree. I wish no harm to anyone, but if you are not prepared due to ignorance of the past history. That's on you.
It's happened before and it'll happen again.
So you expect people to remember acutely how to do something when it occurs only once every 3-5 years?
That schools and businesses even opened that day is beyond ludicrous when the national weather service issued a winter storm warning hours in advance. And that the governor tried to pull a "good, job, Brownie" is both hilarious and angering to me. This isnt 20-20 hindsight or armchair quarterbacking. They dropped the ball and even their recovery and cover-up efforts were lame.
We should have staggered releases? Really?
The weather forecasters messed up? No they didn't. You, the people in the decision-making and leadership roles, did.
Oh and it's also odd because typically, they close schools and the town down and store shelves are emptied at even a hint of snow, but this time? Well I just don't get it. Unless they've been criticized so many times for OVERreacting that this time they UNDERreacted.
Today is "recover your car" day. Good luck to everyone.
Yah...but it kills the roaches. No palmetto bugs up here.
Anyone willing to put up with that garbage, the freezing rain, sleet, snow, are not very smart at all.
Then they whine about the cold, good grief, get over it...
