Yeah, the climate here is typically very mild, and we don't cope well with extremes. Two inches of snow is enough to grind the country to a halt, and anything above the high teens makes us melt into sticky puddles.

Still, I'm not one to complain! It's not often we get it.

You're not far from the Atlanta reaction to snow then. A few years ago we had a snowstorm during a work day and people were trapped on the interstate for 24 hours in some cases.

But being a laughing stock to the rest of the country is sort of our thing. The airport lost power and had to ground all flights. A semi truck full of cows flipped over on the interstate last month. Some survived and were wandering around the road. We suck.
