The typical southern state snow storm is only one to two inches of snow that seems to melt away by the next day. I've seen a snowstorm here in South
Carolina that melted within 2 hours. They do not have very much snow equipment for snow or ice storms that usually melt away within a day or two.
Think about all the roads across a large city and imagine just a few trucks to treat the roads with salt or sand. Snow plows I just do not see at
all. Up north I remember seeing snow plows every day in the winter. It doesn't make sense to spend 100's of thousands of dollars to buy something
that might not get used until the year 2024. It has been at least 9 or 10 years since I've seen this much snow and ice in the south.
Many of the drivers around here leave something to be desired on a normal day. Every state has idiots but the idiots around here drive as well. Then
you have people from up north driving down roads here they don't think are that bad at 40 mph and grandma gets on the road and goes 5 mph. I believe
they tell everyone here to stay off the road to reduce the hundreds of accidents that happen every time. Apparently the last minute snow storm
shoppers like to raid milk, bread, and ground beef from the grocery stores. I go to the grocery store almost every week. I went a day early due to
the weather this week. It looked like zombies had already raided the store. Almost all milk was gone. All ground beef was gone. More than half
of all frozen pizzas were gone. This was in Walmart. I wanted to return an item before they said I had it too long. I think they restocked
Almost every business and store was closed today in my area. Up north, the snow plows would be running and it would just be another day. Here it's a
state wide emergency. I think one or 2 salt and sand trucks put a litte bit of something on the main road through town. Nothing has been plowed.
They just close everything up here rather than spend money preparing for a once in 10 year event. It is cheaper that way.
I think they do have a snow plow for the interstates. That really makes the news if the interstates get shut down due to wrecks after only an inch
or two of snow. I've seen them get practically shut down for hours just because of a wreck on a normal day.
