Minnesotans and Wisconsinites laughing in the distance.
No, seriously, that shit’s “light” for us.
Hahahaha WEAK SAUCE
SAUCE SO WEAK IT’S KETCHUP
I heard there was snow in this post but I don’t see it.
More proof of why the north won.
New England shakes their heads
…. is this a joke.
I feel like this is from a zombie movie
Alright you pieces of shit. Laughing at the south because of our reaction to snow is such an asshole thing to do. We are not prepared for snow, sleet, and ice here. We do not have chains for our tires, we do not learn how to drive in icy conditions. We are two completely different climates, and we are prepared for different situations. People here are DYING because of the severe threat that temperatures in the thirties present to us. Interstates are closing down either because they have too much ice or too many accidents. This isn’t us overreacting. This is us being safe and protecting people. So shut the fuck up.
^^^^^ SO MUCH
okay, look. I grew up in Michigan. I get it. This snow looks like weak shit. We seem like total wimps and morons for being stuck inside and scared to leave our houses, but the thing is, our roads are literally designed the worst way possible for snow and ice. In the south most roads run through hills and valleys. The roads are designed to run water off the sides of the road.
What happens when a road that is designed high in the middle and low on both sides freezes? They become nearly impossible to drive on. Couple that with the inexperience of most southern drivers, and this weather is ACTUALLY DEADLY. People stock up on food and supplies because leaving their house is dangerous. Yesterday my professor was stuck at Target for several hours with a sick baby because roads were completely impassable.
It isn’t about skill or ability. It is science and nature. Roads in the north are flat and grooved for snow and ice, allowing cars to find more traction. It is easier to drive in winter there because of pre planning, equipment, and, yes, experience.
I get it. you’re super bad ass because there’s snow on your yard 5 out of 12 months of the year, but your roads are safer, your cities are equipped, and your neighbors are used to the conditions.
tldr; southerner’s aren’t wimps. roads down here suck, and these conditions are an actual, real threat, so STOP MAKING FUN OF PEOPLE IN THE SOUTH.
