Is it that these areas never get winter or is it that these areas never get this cold with winter?
I’m reading about power outages, car pile ups, people dying. Not being smart, but I did see a plow truck in one national photo, so they must get snow there.
It is possible that the media is just hyping the snot out of it, wouldn’t be the first time they tried to frighten everyone with weather stories. We hear how bad it is going to be with every single snow storm we are supposed to get. Getting freezing rain and sleet right now, supposed to change to snow, then another storm in about a day or two.
I think I have 12-14" of pack in my field right now, not including the drifts which smoe are 2-3 feet high. Thank god I’m not in Canada, they all have igloos for houses by mid winter
