Oh, FUCK YOU, cold climate assholes.

You didn't see us mocking you for having a rough time after storm system Sandy messed up your shit.

It's not practical for us to prepare for severe weather we might see once every decade. Of course it catches us with our pants down.

I don't even think Hurricane Sandy is a fair comparison. I recently got into an argument with a New Yorker who attempted to compare his experiences with Sandy with that of the Philippines and Typhoon Haiyan.

Him: "I bet they are partying like crazy! It was awesome, I got a week off work!"

Me: "Even better, there are totally like 6000 people who never have to work again!"

yogarfield
Oh and stars for the yeti.

You didn't see any of us mocking the south when Hurricane Katrina / Irene / Ivan / whatever happened, either.

Haha, you got snowed in a little and lost your shit.

ashtar.
You wanna fight? Drive on up to Montana and do something about it, big man!

The God of Biscuits
It was solid ice, you assholes. Let's see you drive on ice.

There are these things called tire chains, have you heard of them?

EvilHomer
Hey! Hey Southern people.

I hope you guys live through this. :(

Evilhomer, you're from Boston. Remember that winter in maybe 1999 or 2000 when the plows piled the snow 8 or 9 feet deep in front of the art suppply store in Central Square (Pearl, right? It's only been gone a couple years and I already forget) and the homeless hollowed the pile out and made a giant igloo with two or three doors?

Old_Zircon
I assume they're the ones who made it, at any rate they moved in there for a while.

Eh, it was kind of funny, but then, every time a winter storm comes through the south, those same jokes make the rounds. "OMG got your bread/milk/beer/toilet paper?!?!??! SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING!1111" and such. Har.

And for the last time, it is not the one inch of snow. Snow is fine. The south is capable of preparing for snow with little to no trouble. It's the unpredictable ice assault (sleet/ice pellets, freezing rain) that pops up before, during and/or after the snowfall (if you consider brief bursts of flakes over a period of 15 minutes "snowfall") and accumulates enough fractions of an inch to make every road a fucking slip-n-slide and knock out power for unknown periods of time.

There's hard packed ice on my street that's literally as thick as the length of my index finger because they just didn't bother sending plows through during the first two big snowstorms this month, so when the third one hit (we've got to be pushing 2 feet in as many weeks, the first one alone was over 12") and then turned into rain and back we just ended up with a skating rink.

EvilHomer
Yeah, I live on the third floor; my entrance is a tiny landing that used to be a fire escape. There's a sheet of ice almost as thick as the one OZ is dealing with covering that entire landing. One mistep and I'll plummet three stories into Long Island Sound. But whatever, we've been through worse.

You Southerners need to grow a sack.

Old_Zircon
Got another foot or two last night. Had to cancel my plans because of a parking ban for plowing.

Before my brother moved his family back to Ohio, they lived in New Mexico. Apparently even a dusting of snow would shut the schools down.

Since we're originally from Chicago, he would tell his daughters teachers that 32 F with light snow is called "opening day for baseball" where he came from.

I'm within eyeshot of a 6-foot snow drift outside my window.

This amuses me.

and now it's TOO LATE

cant wait until the summer time when i get to hear all you yankees moan about how hot it is cause it was over 80 for more than a day and old people are baking in their homes.
i work in a kitchen with no hood vent and an all electric range, most of my year is spent at close to 90 degrees and i dont have a furnace; so yeah anything below 50 is pretty fucking cold for me
lordyam
i feel though most of the problems with atlanta has to do with the amount of ice and not so much the snow, teh stupid fucktard designed highway system, and poor choices made by local government

EvilHomer
When do we ever moan about how hot it is? See, us Yankees have this wonderful invention called "air conditioning". Maybe one day, when the South gets electricity and paved roads, you guys can use this invention, too!

il fiore bel
Oh Homer.

I promise I won't laugh when your heat wave gets so bad the power goes out.

ashtar.
Hey, let's not make this a North/South thing.

Can't we just agree that all Easterners are whiny, whinging cowards, huddling in their claustrophobic cities and belly achin' about their minor discomforts?

It was around -20 and icy for a few weeks at the beginning of February, but it seldom dips below 80 and goes for 60 days without rain here in the summer. Also there are usually forest fires and choking smoke in town in August/September. But hey, I'm sure you've got it real tough.

Old_Zircon
When it's not cold here it's in the 90s and so humid that I'll sweat completely through a pair of jeans in a block. New England has October and then the rest of the year is nasty in one way or another (sometimes spring is good for a few weeks but I sneeze so fuck it).

I did a completely scientific test a couple of years ago and it's now proven, 85 degrees in New England feels worse than 110 in Death Valley (around 112 the balance starts to shift).

il fiore bel
Well yeah. Dry heat does not compare to heat with humidity.

Jet Bin Fever
haha! People were stuck in their cars for hours and couldn't get home to their families! Hilarious!
