South's Rare Snow Could Turn to Ice

BREAKING NEWS!!! The above title was posted on AOL news by CNN. I want to clear up a couple points. It is true we don't get a lot of snow and at the risk of ticking off our snow bound northern neighbors we do enjoy seeing it once in a while. We do close our schools and our news folk embarrass us by sitting down at the slag shed explaining how they plan to melt the ice and name it Winterblast two thousand something. We don't get alot of practice driving in it as we are constantly reminded but we get around just fine. We know what black ice is and also know how ice forms. Heck, we even make it into little cubes and put it in our sweet tea. Most of us don't panic, we know it will be gone in a day or two. All in all it is much more Media Circus than the Ice Capades they try to portray. Southern don't mean Stupid. We now return to your regular programing, The Andy Griffith Show.

Amen. However, there are more than the fair share of people who can not seem to drive in rain let alone 1 flake of snow. LOL.

@JennyMac, Yes Ma'am you are right about that. However, I applaud you for surviving your commute. I drive to Atlanta a few times a year and WOW, Thats nuts.

Living up here on the North Coast, even though we get snow every year, people always seem to completely forget how to drive in it. Every. Single. Year.
How can that be?
I don't get it.

Funny stuff...
:-)
